Bernardo recent injury
Bernado recently left the pitch early in the first half while on international duty with Portugal.
He suffered a muscle injury as Portugal faced Sweden in a UEFA National League match, which was played in September 2020.
Although he could not continue the match, he walked around the pitch back to the bench, which indicated that the injury was not serious and would not require a long gap from the game.
However, the extent of the injury was not revealed.
Bernardo and Jorge Jesus conflict
In October 2020, Bernardo posted a statement on social media praising the work of Luis Filipe Viera.
Still, he claimed that Benfica needs to elect a new president as it has become complacent and lacks ambition. After his statement was issued, Jesus mentioned that Bernardo was ungrateful. As per him,
“The club president who helped him grow, who continues to provide great conditions for young people to go out to better clubs, is the case with him. It is very ungrateful.”
He also said Jesus was the one who offered him the first chance in the Benfica team.
Maria’s son relationship
Bernardo is in a relationship with Portuguese model Ines Degener Tomaz.
She is the sister of Mariana Degener Tomaz, who represented Portugal in Miss Global Competition in 2017.
As per sources, they have not been together for long and wanted to take things slowly.
Thus, there are no signs of the couple taking wedding vows soon.
The loving duo was on lockdown together with friends at the house near Lisbon.
Bernardo previously dated model Alicia Verrando.
At that time, Alicia was an intern marketing assistant at Silva’s former club Monaco.
The pair separate their path after two years of their togetherness.
The reason behind their split was considered to be their long-distance relationship.
