Manchester City stars flock to rural UK locations for three-day break



| Last Updated:


Manchester City star Bernardo Silva spent a recent break from first-team footballing duties at the scenic Lake District.

The 29-year-old was afforded a three-day break alongside the entirety of the Manchester City squad following Saturday’s 5-1 win over Wolves at the Etihad Stadium, with the Sky Blues returning to the City Football Academy on Wednesday.

Manchester City have just four matches remaining for the current campaign, and victory across all four games would see Pep Guardiola’s side retain both the Premier League title and Emirates FA Cup trophy.

The Cityzens travel to Fulham for their penultimate away match of the league season on Saturday afternoon, with the opportunity to move to the top of the table with a victory in west London.

The Blues’ visit to Craven Cottage will be followed by a visit to Tottenham on Tuesday evening, prior to Manchester City hosting West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 19th May.

Guardiola’s team will then conclude their season in the capital, facing Manchester United in the Emirates FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 25th May, with the local rivals meeting in the showpiece event for a second consecutive season.

Manchester City players and staff were afforded the chance to take a break during the recent bank holiday weekend, prior to the final weeks of the season.

Bernardo Silva, who has made 45 appearances for the Sky Blues so far this year, made the short trip to Cumbria, visiting the scenic Lake District, staying at the Ladore Falls Hotel and Spa in Barrowdale.

In a statement on Facebook, the complex said: “Blue moon! We have just had the pleasure of hosting Manchester City’s legendary Bernardo Silva who stayed with us last night!

“Thank you so much for choosing the Lodore Falls Hotel & Spa and we hope to welcome you back.”

Fellow Manchester City first-team star Julian Alvarez travelled to Scotland for a break, with full-back Sergio Gomez also spending time there, visiting the capital Edinburgh.

Goalkeeper Stefan Ortega, who has been linked with a potential summer exit, returned to Germany following the win over Wolves.
