Silva loves me more than his girlfriend – Mendy

Bernardo Silva was happy to see Benjamin Mendy make his Manchester City return.

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy joked that team-mate Bernardo Silva loved him more than his girlfriend.

Mendy, 23, made his return from a seven-month injury absence as Pep Guardiola's side thrashed Swansea City 5-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.

Silva celebrated his goal – City's fourth – with Mendy and the France international later joked about their relationship.

"He loves me more than food [& his girlfriend]," Mendy wrote on Twitter with an image of the celebration.

Silva, who retweeted that, also paid tribute to his team – and Mendy – on social media.

The win over Swansea saw Manchester City celebrate their title success in style as they moved onto 90 points in the Premier League.
