Discover the Underrated Midfield Genius at Man City That Even Ruben Dias Admires!

Manchester City are one of the best sides around the globe at present. However, Ruben Dias believes that one City fellow mate still goes under the radar after all such hype. The Sky Blues are the reigning champions of England, Europe and the whole world after a remarkable 2023.

Pep Guardiola became only the second English manager to clinch the treble after Sir Alex Ferguson. Moreover, things are still looking lustrous for another treble as the Cityzens are going hard in all the three major championships this season so far. The Blues got their knock-out stage campaign off to a winning start on Tuesday in a 3-1 win over FC Copenhagen, with Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden grabbing the goals.

Ruben Dias heaps praise on Manchester City teammate

After the first leg of knockout against FC Copenhagen, Dias opens up on the quality of his club and countryman Bernardo Silva. Speaking to The National, he said

It’s unfair for me to say how good he is because I am his fellow Portuguese and we have a special connection. But that aside he is a key player for us because, first of all, how intelligent he is. Due to his personality and the fact that he is so funny people might think one thing or another about him but when times get rough he is always there.

Other players may get a lot of headlines but Bernardo is always there. That’s the way it works. But when you analyse why we have been winning so much over the past few years Bernardo’s name will be there.”

Bernardo Silva was close to leaving the Etihad in the previous windows. There were immense interests from Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona for him, but somehow nothing materialised. The 29-year-old is one of the best footballers on the planet and it would be near-impossible to find a replacement who can do all he can at the same high level. Considering City lost the influential Gundogan in the summer, Bernardo leaving too would have been a hammer blow.
