[on Euro 2016 final] ll the French were in one hotel room, and all the Portuguese were in the other. That was the only way to keep the peace. When we faced France in the Euro 2016 final it was the biggest game in the history of Portuguese football. It was also a moment I had been waiting for my whole life - I had worked so hard to get there. But when my teammates came out of the tunnel at the Stade de France, I was hundreds of kilometers away. I wasn’t living my dream. I was in a hotel room in Switzerland, watching the game on television

[Bernardo Silva tells how the teams of Pep Guardiola maintain such a high level throughout the season] Yeah, it’s exhausting under Pep, there is no doubt about that. But it’s what we have to do. If you want to go for all the trophies season after season you need to have someone who pushes you day after day

[Bernardo Silva speaks about life in Manchester] People know who you are and sometimes people ask for pictures but it’s fine and the people of Manchester are very respectful, so when Pep gives us a day off, I go for breakfast almost every day and I take a walk in the city centre. I like Juan Mata’s restaurant and I go to Pep’s restaurant, but we have to pay double!

[Ronaldo’s international team-mate Bernardo Silva also spoke highly of the former Manchester United superstar] I think what makes him so great is his mentality. He is 35 years old and it has been more than 15 years that he has played at the top level and he is not tired. He always wants more. He wants to win more Champions Leagues, he wants to win more titles with Portugal, he wants to win more leagues, more individual trophies, he wants more goals. I think what is annoying about him, in a way, is that in a training session, you play a game, and it is 1-1. The manager says whoever scores wins, and it is always him. It is not only in the games

When a game is stuck and you don’t know if you’re going to win or not, you know that if you give him the ball, he is the guy who decides; something special might happen when he has the ball. Even in the training session it is kind of annoying because it is always him that scores the most important goals! I think that is what makes him special, being there in the most important moments
