Silva working his socks off

Bernardo Silva is having double training sessions to bring him up to speed with the rest of his Manchester City team-mates.

The £43m summer capture from Monaco is likely to be among the substitutes for City's Premier League opener at newly-promoted Brighton, having returned from holiday just ten days ago.

Midfielder Bernardo got a 30-minute run out in the recent friendly victory over West Ham United but was earlier this week handed a tailored training programme by City's conditioning team.

City skipper Vincent Kompany, however, is convinced the 23-year-old will become a pivotal player in Pep Guardiola's squad once he reaps the benefits of his new training regime.

The Belgium international defender said: "You can see what qualities he has (Bernardo).

"He's got a silky touch, he is a player who knows how to make key passes and I'm obviously very excited because I know how these kind of players can decide games and help you towards achieving great things.

"But he's a little bit behind on his fitness probably, which is normal and we'll need him at the right time."
