“Benfica? I didn't play and I didn't go to the bank. They wanted to loan me out.”

BToday, Friday, Ernardo Silva gave an extensive interview to the official Manchester City media regarding the FA Cup final against Manchester United, and one of the topics of conversation was his time in the Benfica squad.

“There were some doubts, because between the ages of 13 and 18 I wasn't even a starter and I wasn't on the bench. Benfica wanted to loan me to a smaller club in Lisbon. I was shorter, thinner and slower than the other players.” But I fought and did my best to keep going. I was inspired by a team like Barcelona, ​​which had players like Messi, Xavi, Iniesta and Pedro, all short players. “I have this hope,” began the midfielder, who recalled his move to Monaco on loan from the Eagles.

“From the moment I signed my first professional contract, I have since started playing again. I moved to Monaco, I thought I was at a good level and I started to believe I could reach a very good level. I never gave up. “It was my dream, but when people doubt Vic When I was 14 years old, I never imagined that I would reach where I am and I am very happy with the career I have had,” said the Portuguese international who also spoke about his first goals with the nationals.

“I did not expect, not even close, after seven years, to win so many titles… Six years and five Premier League championships are the toughest in this country. I felt it from the first season. In the first season, six months I did not play.” A lot, because of the adaptation and everything, but from Season 2 onwards, the connection started to become very strong.”
