Former Liverpool star backs Bernado Silva for captaincy role at Manchester City – Futaa

Jammie Redknapp has backed Bernado Silva for the vacant captaincy role at Manchester City, after the recent exit of Vincent Kompany. 

Silva has been in phenomenal form this campaign and helped Portugal win the UEFA Nations League on Sunday night, setting up Goncalo Guedes to score the winning goal against the Netherlands. 

He was awarded the Player of the Tournament after his heroics, and Redknapp thinks the diminutive creative midfileder is good enough to pick after Kompany. 

“I wouldn’t look further than him,” he replied after he was asked if the Portuguese can make a good captain. 

After a rugged start partially due to an injury, Silva has become the main man for Manchester City, guiding them to a treble in the past campaign. 

He won the English Premier League, the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup with City, and reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, where they lost to Tottenham. 

Apart from the title wins, the former Monaco man won the club’s Player of the Season award and was named in the Team of the Season. 

He added the player of the tournament in the Nations League win, and at only 24, he has the potential of challenging for top honours including the Ballon dór.
