Manchester City star Bernardo Silva channelled his inner Jose Mourinho during his post-match interaction after Liverpool defeated the defending Premier League champions 3-1 at Anfield. City were supposedly on the wrong side of two Video Assistant Referee decisions and the Portuguese was involved in one of them.
In the sixth minute of the match, the ball struck Trent Alexander-Arnold’s hands inside Liverpool box after grazing Silva’s hands. The Reds started a counter immediately after the handball and Fabinho ended up scoring on the other end. Though replays clearly showed the ball striking the fullback’s hands, VAR didn’t turn the referee’s decision and the goal stood.
When asked to explain the incident after the match, the Portuguese midfielder took the road taken by his compatriot Jose Mourinho previously. He said, “If I speak I will be in trouble. I don’t want to speak.”

Jose Mourinho will be proud of Bernardo Silva
