Manchester City forward Bernardo Silva has decided to use the break in the football season to learn the piano and raise money for medical resources in the process.

The 25 year-old is engaging in the 'United for Portugal' campaign and called on other members of the public to also stay in their houses and pick up new skills.

He said: "Once at home, where we are unbeatable, I'm taking the opportunity to learn to play the piano. If I train my feet, why not train my hands?

"Use your time at home to develop other talents as well."

All elite football in England is currently suspended until at least April 30, with organisers meeting on Friday to try and decide when the campaign can be completed.
