(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER PEP GUARDIOLA ON BERNARDO SILVA TWEET SAYING: "If they believe or the people believe or the FA believe Bernardo is this type of player they are completely wrong.

They judge one joke, I judge three years with him every single day how he is, related and his friendship and what it is.

Apart from that so nothing more to add." MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (FILE - MAY 20, 2019) (CITY TV - ACCESS ALL) 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER PEP GUARDIOLA ON BERNARDO SILVA TWEET SAYING: "Bernardo is an exceptional person, an exception.

He likes to be involved in different situations so what I say is make the focus on other issues not on Bernardo because he is absolutely not guilty because his intention was just a joke.

It's a cartoon and the face is quite similar.

Probably the same thing happened a thousand million times with white people - it's the same.

It was just a joke and that's all.

The people in the FA or in the departments think it is completely opposite and Bernardo and Manchester City are open to listening to opinions and that is all." KHARKIV, UKRAINE (RECENT - SEPTEMBER 17, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 5.

I am not looking for it and I am not sat here saying am going to play the perfect game.

What is that?

Nothing!

MANCHESTER CITY PLAYERS STRETCHING STORY: Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has once again launched a staunch defence of Bernardo Silva after the midfielder came under fire for a controversial tweet.

Silva, the Portugal midfielder, has faced backlash this week after he sent a tweet which compared a picture of teammate Benjamin Mendy as a child, to the cartoon logo of Spanish confectionery company Conguitos.

Guardiola, speaking ahead of his side's Premier League match against Everton on Saturday (September 28) said that his player is an 'exceptional person' who did not mean to cause any offence by sending the tweet which he subsequently deleted shortly afterwards.

Manchester City travel to Goodison Park on the back of a stunning 8-0 win over Watford in their last league match, as they look to cut the gap to Liverpool at the top of the league, who currently lead them by 5 points.
