Bernardo Silva expresses his desire to return to Benfica at some point in his career.
The Man City midfielder earlier wanted to leave in the summer who has been playing a crucial role in Guardiola’s team this season.
Losing Silva would be a huge loss to Man City and Guardiola allows players to leave who are unsettled at the club.
Silva was asked about his future aspirations and he also praised Guardiola’s man-management skills.
He said (via A Bola): “Training and presiding doesn’t make sense. Play? Without a doubt, if they want me there.”
“I think Guardiola has a bit of everything. He is very complete,” he said.
“I’m not going to name names, but I’ve had coaches who are very good tactically and then, in human relation, are very weak; or very good in human relation and very weak tactically.
“I think Guardiola’s greatest strength is that, apart from having been a player at a very high level, which gives him a perspective of what we feel, his technical side is very strong.
“He manages the tactical part, the human part and managing a locker room is nothing, nothing easy. Even more so in a team as strong as ours, most of the players cost 50, 60, 70, 80 million.
“He manages to keep players who cost this much on the bench for so many games, and even then there are no major problems… I think this shows how good he is at managing changing rooms.”
