Bernardo Silva was left fuming when Bruno Fernandes tried to talk to him

Bernardo Silva was not best pleased when Bruno Fernandes tried to put his arm around him and talk to him at half-time during the FA Cup final.
Silva and Fernandes are believed to have a close relationship off the pitch, as they met when they were both teenagers.
Following United's 6-3 loss to City at The Etihad earlier this season, Fernandes made the effort to shake every City player's hand after the game.
Silva then made it a point to return the gesture when United beat City 2-1 at Old Trafford in January this year.
At the time, Bruno Fernandes spoke about his relationship with Bernardo Silva: “I have a great relationship with Bernardo," Fernandes said at the time.
"When we won at home, he came to shake my hand. He said to me, ‘When you lost at home, you shook my hand, everybody's hand, so I have to do it, even when I lose’."
However, it looks like the importance and high stakes of Saturday's FA Cup final may have added more fire to their friendship, even if only for a day as footage showed tensions flaring.
As the teams walked off at half-time, Fernandes tried to approach Silva, putting his arm around him to talk to him.
Silva though, was not in the mood and gestured for his international teammate to stay away from him, before shoving Fernandes away from him.
The video clip did the rounds on social media, with one user saying: "No wonder Portugal have never been close to winning a World Cup. These lot hate each other."
Fans think that Bernardo Silva's anger may have had something to do with the penalty that Manchester United were awarded, which Fernandes converted.
Nevertheless, the two will meet up for intenational duty in just two weeks, as Portugal have Euro 2024 qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 17th, followed by Iceland on June 20th.
