Man City star Bernardo Silva took to Twitter to vent his frustrations following his club's unceremonious Champions League exit on Saturday. The Portuguese attacker went on to label Liverpool fans 'pathetic' following Man City's defeat to Lyon in the quarter-final. However, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk appeared to send a perfectly timed response to Bernardo Silva's tweet before the Dutchman soon deleted his post.

Bernardo Silva's tweet on Liverpool fans after Man City's UCL exit to Lyon

On Saturday night, Man City's disappointing season came to an end as Pep Guardiola's side were humbled 3-1 by Lyon in their one-legged Champions League quarter-final. It meant that Man City finished their campaign with a Community Shield and the League Cup for their efforts. Rival fans, including Liverpool supporters, have been revelling in City's demise with Bernardo Silva being a prime target. 

Liverpool fans chose to mock Silva due to the fact that he failed to applaud the Premier League champions during their guard of honour back in July. The social media banter was a little too much for the Man City midfielder, who then took aim at the Reds faithful and labelled them 'pathetic'. A number of Liverpool fans once again made their feelings known about Man City's UCL exit and it seemed that Silva's tweet was seen by a few members of the Liverpool squad.

Van Dijk uploaded a picture of himself at Liverpool's pre-season training, looking rather smug. It was no coincidence and a number of fans believed that Van Dijk's post was in response to Bernardo Silva. However, Virgil van Dijk soon deleted the post.

Liverpool supporters still remember Man City players singing about their club following the 2018-19 season. Pep Guardiola's side pipped Liverpool to the Premier League title by a solitary point that campaign in what essentially came down to a 'goal-line clearance'. Silva had joined in with the Man City team that mocked Mo Salah over his injury and Liverpool fans getting battered in the streets.
