Footage of Bernardo Silva being filmed by fan in street goes viral

Footage of Bernardo Silva being filmed by fan in street goes viral

He can be heard saying, "What are you doing, my friend?”

A viral video of Bernardo Silva being approached by a fan in public has been picked up millions of views online.

Since his arrival from Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco, the Portuguese midfielder has played a key role in Manchester City's success of late, lifting five Premier League titles, four League Cups, two FA Cup's and most recently the Champions League.

Silva continues to be linked with a move away from the Etihad however, with Barcelona keeping tabs on the 29-year-old's situation in Manchester.

Silva, a fan favourite at reigning Premier League champions, is set to sign a new contract at Manchester City despite rumours of his departure.

And judging by a viral TikTok, he didn't have a clue what was happening when a fan approached him in the streets of Manchester.

Despite covering his face with his arm while leaning against a door, the man spots Silva from a distance and approaches him for a picture.

After calling out his name, the eager fan eventually managed to get a picture with the Portugal international, who initially replied saying: "What are you doing, my friend?”

And here is how social media reacted to the clip. One fan said: "Why can’t people not harass him on the street and just let him enjoy his own time and privacy?" while another commented: "Stop filming people all the time and let him live his life."

A third wrote: "Famous people can’t catch a break."

Back in July last year, a video of Pep Guardiola being chased by a shouting fan on a bike in the centre of Manchester went viral.

Seven weeks after leading his team to a Premier League title on the final day, Guardiola returned to the North West ahead of Manchester City's first day of pre-season training.

And the former Barcelona boss wasted no time in getting back into the swing of city life.

He was spotted cycling through the centre of Manchester by an over eager fan, who proceeded to chase after Guardiola in the hope of getting a picture with the Spaniard.

In the clip uploaded to TikTok, the man filmed himself chasing the 51-year-old down a narrow alleyway near Parsonage Gardens in Manchester.

He could be heard saying: "Aye Pep, let me get a picture bro! Yo! My man's smokin' off, yo! Aye Pep! Yo, nah nah you man need to see this! Oh my god!"

After finally catching up with the Manchester City manager, who looked far from impressed with the man's actions, Guardiola eventually got off his bike and refused a fist-pump with the person involved.

"Yo Pep! Let me get a picture, why you running off bro, let me get a picture bro!" said the fan. "Let me get a picture, I just want a picture! I just want a picture, yo my g!"
