Manchester City star Bernardo Silva has lashed out at Liverpool fans, enjoying the shocking Champions League elimination of their rivals.
The 26-year-old released a protest cry aimed at the City fanbase after a frustrating Saturday night season came to a limp end, but his Twitter mentions were soon inundated with other supporters enjoying the moment.
Silva denounced the members of the Anfield fanbase, calling them ‘pathetic’ in an extraordinary social media rant.

City were tipped broadly to get to at least the next stage of the top European league, but found themselves running home after a 3-1 defeat to Lyon instead.
The club took more silverware earlier this season due to their Carabao Cup triumph, but Pep Guardiola’s men would give up their league title and also not keep the FA Cup.
Liverpool fans have every right to be ecstatic after their team ended their 30-year league title, but Silva couldn’t resist shooting back at those who enjoyed themselves with their success.

He wrote: ‘And to all the Liverpool fans who have nothing to do but come to a Man City player account, I’m sorry for you too but for all the wrong reasons … pathetic … are you going to celebrate titles, or try to find a partner, have a beer with a friend, read a book … so many options. ‘
City never made it past the Champions League quarter-finals led by Pep Guardiola, but were tipped to finally break their curse after knocking out Real Madrid.
But it was Lyon who will instead face Bayern Munich in the final four in Lisbon after City fell apart in the one-legged clash.
Maxwel Cornet opened the scoring for the Ligue 1 team with a smart finish in the front post of Ederson, before Kevin de Bruyne turned into the far corner with a beautifully beaten first attempt.

Lyon sealed the victory with a double by Moussa Dembele, who came on either side of a horror miss by Raheem Sterling.
Silva, who was a surprising absentee from the game after being named as one of the substitutes as part of a formation reshuffle, previously vowed that City will bounce back the next campaign.
He tweeted: ‘The 2019/2020 season has ended in a very disappointing way for us. To all fans, we are sorry for this frustrating season.
‘All we can promise is that in 2020/2021 we will fight a lot to do much better and win important things for you again!’
