Cesc Fabregas has said that one of the two players he would love to manage in the Premier League is Bernardo Silva.
As shared by Football Daily, the Como B manager has entered the world of coaching after having hung up his boots.
Cesc Fabregas has named Bernardo Silva as a player he would dream of working with.
Cesc Fabregas names Bernardo Silva as a player he’d love to manage
Branded as a player with ‘super intelligence’ by Ruben Dias, the £43 million (BBC Sport) man has been one of the best in the world for a number of years now.
Even Pep Guardiola once called the 29-year-old ‘unique’ (via Manchester City’s official website) as he is perhaps the most multifaceted player in world football.
When quizzed about which players he would like to manage in the Premier League, Cesc Fabregas singled out Bernardo Silva as one of the two.

“It’s difficult to say. I’m a big fan of [Martin] Odegaard at Arsenal, Bernardo Silva at Man City, all these types of players. Every year, they keep growing, keep growing, it’s something that I identify myself with a lot because that shows a lot about what their character is.”
No surprises that Cesc Fabregas is interested in working with the Manchester City midfielder
Being one of the greatest midfielders of his generation, it is natural that Cesc Fabregas is drawn to a player like Bernardo Silva.
Much like himself, the former AS Monaco attacker is also a technical master, excellent in tight spaces and an expert at controlling games.
From a coach’s perspective, to work with Bernardo Silva would be an eye-opening experience, analysing how well he adapts to various positions on the pitch, be it in a double pivot or as a winger.
As silky as he is dogged defensively, to coach the finest of Swiss Army knives must be fascinating for Pep Guardiola and the same would the case if Cesc Fabregas was his manager.
