Manchester City: Fans protest Bernardo Silva punishment over Benjamin Mendy tweet

Following the news that Manchester City winger Bernardo Silva will miss the game against Chelsea after admitting to a breach of FA rules and being slapped with a one-match ban, supporters haven’t taken too kindly to the disciplinary action.

Along with the short ban, Silva has also been fined £50,000 and will have to go through face to face education as part of his punishment after sending a tweet to teammate Benjamin Mendy that contained seemingly racist undertones.

Can Manchester City still win the title?

No

Despite this, City’s 2018/19 Player of the Season maintains the notion that he did not intend for it to be that way and was merely joking around with a friend.

Following the announcement, it’s safe to say supporters aren’t too happy – with lots of City followers protesting the ban on Twitter.
