Not for the first time this season, someone should really take Bernardo Silva's phone away from him, after the Manchester City star once again reacted to Liverpool fans.
On Sunday, just two days after City were knocked out of the Champions League by Lyon, the midfielder tweeted to all the Liverpool fans giving him stick on social media, saying he was 'sorry' for them, called them pathetic and told them to go 'read a book.'
It wasn't exactly the smartest way of dealing with trolls and it certainly suggested they'd got to him. Unsurprisingly the tactic didn't work and after presumably getting more trolls in his mentions he's hit out again.
This time Silva's suggested that the rival fans couldn't even read a book, which is unnecessarily offensive and further proof he's the most rattled man in football.
I guess reading a book was a bit too much for you... maybe just go for a brew :joy::joy:- Bernardo Silva (@BernardoCSilva) August 17, 2020
And if that pattern is that the City player tweets, gets more abuse so tweets again then you can be pretty certain he'll have his phone out again tonight.
That's obviously because, in the least surprising twist in this tale, once again fans were quick to react, surely he'll learn this time

City did get further than defending European champions Liverpool in the Champions League this season, with Jurgen Klopp's side knocked out of the last 16 by Atletico Madrid, but their loss to Lyon was still a huge disappointment.
Added to the fact they didn't defend their Premier League title, losing out to their north west rivals by 18 points, means it's not been a great season.
It's not the first time Silva has made the headlines for tweeting this season either, although this recent outburst is far less troublesome, after the former Monaco man was suspended for a racist tweet about teammate Benjamin Mendy.
The Portuguese midfielder also had a run in on the pitch with Klopp's side and their fans after he was criticised for hishalf arsed guard of honour when the champions visited the Etihad Stadium in their first game after winning the title.
