Bernardo Silva fire on Man City player Benjamin Mendy’s tweet

Bernardo Silva, who scored a hat-trick in Manchester City’s 8-0 hammering of Watford on Saturday, posted a message comparing Mendy to the character used in the logo for Conguitos, a brand of confectionary popular in Spain and Portugal

The Football Association has written to Manchester City to ask the club for its response to a tweet sent by midfielder Bernardo Silva. he related City team-mate Benjamin Mendy to the mark on the packet of Conguitos – a sweet brand available in Spain and Portugal.

Manchester City declined to comment.

“We are extremely disappointed to see the tweet posted by Bernardo Silva,” said the anti-discrimination body.

The post was published at 12:44 BST on Sunday but was deleted at 13:30.

Bernardo next tweeted: “Can’t even joke with a friend these days.”

What Mendy responded after Silva?

Mendy responded to the tweet and did not look to take offense. A previous video of Silva joking with Mendy has also been passed on to the Football organizations.

“Racist stereotypes are never acceptable as ‘banter’, and we’re shocked that someone who is a role model to millions has failed to understand the discriminatory nature of his post.”

Kick It Out said the FA had been notified and that they believe “retrospective action” should be taken, including “mandatory education”

“The FA has been notified which is vital to challenge offensive behavior such as this.”

France defender Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva are close buddies and played together(teammates) at Monaco before both joined City in 2017.
