While on Portuguese TV on a 5 Para a Meia-Noite show, challenged his fellow to win trophies at Manchester United.

‘I went to Tróia with some friends and it was a lot of fun. We ran, played tennis … Now I’ve been here in Manchester for 10 days and I’m sick of it,’ joked Silva.

‘I spoke to [Fernandes] about three days ago. He’s winning 1-0 in the games between us here, but he still has to eat a lot of soup to reach the titles.’
