Jack Grealish’s World Cup rival is placing bets on how often the tricky England ace will be fouled, his team-mate claims

BERNARDO SILVA revealed he has placed bets with Portuguese team-mates on how many free-kicks Jack Grealish will win in England games.

The Manchester City maestro does not want his Portuguese to face the Three Lions in a World Cup semi-final that could feature up to EIGHT of Pep Guardiola’s squad.

City’s £100m man Grealish last week claimed Bernardo is one of the best he’s ever played with.

Bernardo is also a big fan of Grealish who usually wins a lot of free kicks for City.

The Portuguese ace, whose side beat Switzerland 6-1 on Tuesday, said: “I text Jack all the time.

“When he came on as a substitute against Senegal, I told him I filmed Ruben Dias and asked him, ‘How many fouls do you think Jack Grealish will win in those 25 minutes?’

“Ruben said nine, I said seven, I was closer because he didn’t win that many.

“I’m very happy for Jack and also for Phil Foden, all of City’s English players, they did well.

“I wish them all the best but honestly I don’t want to play them in the semifinals.”

If England beat France and Portugal underdogs Morocco on Saturday, they would meet in the semi-finals on Wednesday.

And Bernardo is only too aware of what Grealish could bring to a game like this.

He said: “He works for the team like he attracts players to create spaces for other players.

“I think he will be great for Man City for the next few years.”
