Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola applauded Bernardo Silva's intelligence after starring in a less familiar central role against Fulham on Saturday, proving himself to have the "wow" factor. "Control the ball and pass the ball simple".

The Portugal worldwide played more centrally than he is used to, yet he seemed to thrive in a Kevin De Bruyne-like role, nearly setting up Raheem Sterling early on, before then playing a vital role in David Silva's goal to make it 2-0 in the 21st minute.

There are also signs that Silva, who had been outstanding in the Community Shield against Chelsea and Premier League opener at Arsenal, is benefiting from a year's adjustment to English football.

"He can play three, four, five positions but he deserves all my respect", Guardiola said.

Vera Cohen, 102, and younger sister Olga Halon, 98, who have been season ticket holders at the club since 1930, walked out with the players at The Etihad stadium as they saw their side beat Fulham 3-0.

Manchester City playmaker David Silva, who has been in terrific form so far this season, has now commented on his future in England.

Silva also admitted that he would like to play for his local team Las Palmas before calling time on his career, but insisted that he would want to stay in Manchester for the remainder of his contract before making a decision.


'I can play either in the centre or wide, I can do whatever the manager thanks is best for the team.

A superb piece of midfield skill from Bernardo Silva played Sterling clean through on goal only for the England global to strike the crossbar. I don't forget the behaviour he had last season when he played a lot but didn't start.

City begin their Champions League campaign with a home match against Lyon this Wednesday before a trip to Cardiff City in the Premier League on Saturday. "If they miss that - and there was many of that - that's why [in training] I am going to show them we can improve".

"They didn't come here to defend and play long balls, they came here to play their own game".

A decade in, City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak warned as City's revenue broke the £500 million barrier last week "our journey is not complete and we have more targets to fulfil".

However, coach Pep Guardiola said they could have scored more goals and they must be more clinical in front of the goal.
