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
