Man City star Bernardo Silva gives verdict on Ronaldo vs Messi debate
Bernardo Silva says the debate about who is better between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is "not controversial" - because people should just enjoy them both.
The Manchester City man is a Ronaldo teammate for Portugal. The couple won the first Nations League tournament together last year.
According to Silva, the experience of training and playing alongside the Juventus striker was special and praised his exemplary work ethic.

"It will be special and unique to tell my children and grandchildren that I could give them some help," Silva told BBC Sport.
“He is a role model on and next to the square. We train with Portugal in the morning. In the afternoon everyone plays cards or PlayStation, but they go to the gym.
"In the big moments when you need it most, it's always there."
And while the debate between Messi and Ronaldo has been raging for over a decade, Silva doesn't want to be part of it.
"It is a debate that is not controversial," he added.
“I think we have to feel privileged to be able to see them together at the same time.
"They are two of the best players of all time - if not the two best players of all time."
Silva is currently preparing for the return of the Premier League. City will be back on Wednesday night with a game against Arsenal.
