To say the Manchester City midfielder is in the form of his life would be an utter understatement, to say the least. With five goals in all competition already under his belt this season, he only needs four more to match the tally of his debut Premier League season.
But there’s a saying that ‘Behind every successful man there is a woman’, and for the Portuguese, it’s Alicia Verrando, who grew up in Monte Carlo. Bernardo and Alicia met during the former’s tenure with AS Monaco, where luckily Alicia was working as a Marketing Assistant while also studying business administration degree at SKEMA Business School. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Management from California State University.
And as it turns out, she started working for the club full time as the Project Manager until the time her beau earned his move to Manchester City in 2017. Prior to
Bernardo moved to City for a reported £43.5 million fee and made an instant impact, to say the least. Alicia, on the other hand, entered the world of glamour and started working as a model for J’adore Models, where she promotes phone cases, beauty products etc.
Alicia is a working professional and as things stand right now, she is associated with a Manchester-based PR company Roland Dransfield as an Account Executive. As per her LinkedIn profile, it has only been a month that Alicia has joined the company. Her profile also states that she speaks six different languages including Chinese, Italian, French, English, Portuguese and Spanish. Her Instagram profile, on the other hand, boasts of 23 thousand followers.
Meanwhile, she is also a frequent visitor for Bernardo’s games and also travelled to Russia for the FIFA World Cup. She was also spotted on the field at the Etihad when Manchester City lifted the Premier League honour last season.
