Bernardo Silva Drives A Car You Would Least Associate With A Footballer

Bernardo Silva Drives A Car You Would Least Associate With A Footballer

A common misconception is that all top-level footballers drive expensive, top of the range motors but Manchester City's Bernardo Silva is the latest player to quash that myth.

While a good portion of players do pull into training in their Ferraris, Maseratis and Lamborghinis because they have the handsome pay packet to do so, some prefer a cheaper option.

Bernardo being one of those players, turned up for Portugal national team duty in a Smart Car ahead of the World Cup. Ricardo Quaresma was driving his Mercedes S-Class, recently called up Manuel Fernandes opted for a Ferrari 458 and Southampton's Cedric was behind the wheel in a Porsche Panamera.

But former Monaco man Bernardo, a double-winner with City in his first season in England, is clearly a man of simple tastes and enjoyed the comfort of the smart fortwo, which costs a modest £10,000 according to the official Smart website.

De Gea, arguably the best goalkeeper in the world, recently turned up training looking like he was about to do some serious painting and decorating, while Kante, not really into his cars, drives a Mini Cooper because it helped him adapt to driving on the left-hand side.

Bernardo, often on the receiving end of pranks at City, has already endeared himself to the City supporters and his humble choice of 'whip' will enhance his reputation further.
