Manchester City star Bernardo Silva is one of the Premier League's best players right now - and his incredible form is down to his bikini model girlfriend, according to boss Pep Guardiola.
Silva, 27, is at the top of his game and performing at a level that makes him one of the league's best players alongside Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.
The quality he's displaying had been absent for a long time, with his 2019 ban and lockdown impacting him off the pitch.
That meant he wasn't able to see his girlfriend, Ines Tomaz Silva, during lockdown.
But his boss recently suggested that now he's once again able to spend time with her, Silva has returned to his best.
Guardiola said: “I have the feeling now he is happy here, with his personal life and hopefully he can have an exceptional season with us again."
He added: “Bernardo has a special ability to do what he wants with the ball.
"If you watch him two or three seasons ago, you will see them same player you are seeing now.”
Silva and Tomaz were forced to be apart for a long time while the City attacker had to play through the pandemic.
But since then they have been inseparable, at least if her Instagram is anything to go by.
Several snaps of the pair can be seen on her feed, which also features holiday pictures of Tomaz showing off her figure.
Silva has been nominated for the Premier League November Player of the Month award, such is his form.
He's scored three goals in his last four league games and Guardiola has labelled him "undroppable".
His potential exit from the club in the summer therefore looks all the more ridiculous.
The Portugal international wanted out of the Etihad to move to Spain and be closer to his family and friends.
He also thought the £100m arrival of Jack Grealish could impact his game time.
But in the absence of main man Kevin De Bruyne, Silva has once again taken centre stage, just as he did when they won the 2018/19 title.
Guardiola owes Tomaz some flowers.
