Man City star Bernardo Silva names the two Arsenal players he wishes he could play alongside

Man City star Bernardo Silva names the two Arsenal players he wishes he could play alongside

Bernardo Silva picked two Arsenal stars.

Bernardo Silva named two Arsenal stars after he was asked to pick three non-Portuguese players he'd have in his national team's Euro 2024 squad.

Portugal boast a star-studded team as Cristiano Ronaldo has explained why they 'deserve' to win the tournament ahead of the likes of England and France.

Roberto Martinez can call upon Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias and Silva, who named three non-Portuguese players he'd have in their squad.

Firstly, Silva opted for France and new Real Madrid signing Kylian Mbappe, calling him a 'beast'.

He began: "I would say Kylian Mbappe definitely. I played with him and he's a beast. I love him."

The Blues star refused to name any of his club teammates as he selected two Arsenal players as the Gunners pushed them all the way in the Premier League last season.

He picked Declan Rice, who was linked with a move to the Etihad before penning a deal at the Emirates.

The 29-year-old also chose William Saliba as he hailed the Arsenal star as a 'really good defender'.

Silva added: "I'm going for one midfielder. I'm going to say Declan Rice. I really like him and I'm not going to say any City players, so you don't think that I'm going with friends otherwise I could have said like Rodri or a striker or whatever... so I'm not going to say any teammates.

"I'm going to go with Saliba. I think he's a really good defender."

Mbappe, Rice and Saliba are all in Germany for Euro 2024 for their respective nations.

Mbappe and Saliba are among the stars in the France camp while Rice is expected to start for England when they open their campaign against Serbia.

Portugal, meanwhile, are grouped with Turkey, Georgia and Czech Republic in Group F.

The Euro 2016 winners begin their campaign next Tuesday when they face Czech Republic.
