City new boy hails 'great players'

Bernardo Silva expects to improve in Manchester City's attack because he is playing alongside "quality, intelligent" players.

The Portugal midfielder has been used sparingly since his £43million summer move from Monaco by manager Pep Guardiola.

But he impressed as he was given a second City start in Wednesday's emphatic 4-0 win at Feyenoord in the Champions League.

Playing up front alongside Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, and well serviced by the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva, Silva helped City run the Dutch champions ragged in their Group F opener.

The 23-year-old told reporters: "It is a pleasure to play alongside these kind of players. I am learning a lot from them and I hope I can learn much more.

"To play alongside Kevin, David Silva and all the players we have in this squad - it is very good to be here and I am feeling better and better.

"It is easy when you play with quality players, intelligent players like them. It is much easier and much better to play alongside great players, some of the best in the world, than lesser quality players."
