Manchester City: Fans react with disgust to footage of Bernardo Silva skill

Manchester City: Fans react with disgust to footage of Bernardo Silva skill - Manchester City

Plenty of Manchester City fans have reacted to an online clip featuring Bernardo Silva teasing opponents, although their main focus wasn’t necessarily on the Portugal winger.

Instead, after @City_Chief on Twitter uploaded footage of the 25-year-old leading Tottenham players a merry dance in the 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium last August before giving away a free kick, many replied to condemn referee Michael Oliver for calling a foul.

The clip shows Bernardo evading the close attentions of Erik Lamela, Tanguy Ndombele and Danny Rose to keep possession throughout the passage of play, dribbling around them multiple times before eventually being adjudged to have fouled Rose when the two players collided.

That match ended in controversy after Gabriel Jesus had a stoppage time winner ruled out following a VAR review, the second time in four months that City had been denied a decisive late goal at home to Spurs following their epic Champions League battle last season. [via BBC]
