Manchester City 1-0 Tottenham: Bernardo Silva hands his Man of the Match award to game-winner Phil Foden in classy gesture
Bernardo Silva is quickly becoming one of the most likeable players in the Premier League.
Not only is he technically superb and unsurprisingly a nominee for the PFA Player of the Year award, but he also seems to be a genuinely good bloke.
And that was the case again moments after Man City claimed a crucial three points against Spurs on Saturday afternoon.
Phil Foden scored the match-winning goal after just five minutes and, despite Mauricio Pochettino’s side looking very dangerous on the counter, City clung onto the victory to return to the top of the table.
Silva was deservedly named Man of the Match for his tireless efforts, but in his post match interview he decided to gift his award to Foden, whom he thought was more deserving.
Have a look at a clip of the interview below…
