- Bernardo Silva was spotted arriving for training in a modest Smart car
- His other Portuguese teammates arrived in expensive rides worth millions
- He joins David De Gea and N'Golo Kante who drive modest cars
Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva was seen arriving for national duty in Oieras on Tuesday, May 22, ahead of the 2018 World Cup.
What made matters more interesting is the glaring contrast of Bernardo's car compared to the rest of his teammates who were seen alighting from state-of-the-art machines fit for royalty.
Manuel Fernandes arrived fashionably in his Ferrari 458, Ricardo Quaresma in his German Mercedes S-Class whilst the humble City midfielder drove in with his simple Smart car.
Interestingly, out of most of his teammates, Bernardo has had a remarkable season and played a pivotal role in leading the Citizens to lifting the 2017/2018 English Premiership and Carabao cup.
Already a fan favourite in City, the Portuguese star continues to show that indeed not all footballers are all about the flashy swag and spendthrift mentality.
Bernardo joins the ranks of unique footballers who has shown the world how go out of the norm and choose efficient cars despite earning millions.
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea was spotted arriving at the Carrington training grounds in a simple Volkswagen back in April.
De Gea, who is arguably the world's best keeper, seems to also opt for the much humble path and was recently seen turning up for training with the Spanish national team in a van.
Chelsea midfielder N'golo Kante is known for driving his signature 2015 Mini Cooper S.
Well, when it's all said and done, so long as the car takes you from point A to B, it's a breathe of fresh air to see high-profile football stars opting for a touch of simplicity in their lives.
