City Skipper Inks One-Year Extension Deal

Manchester City skipper, Fernandinho, is set to stay at the club after signing a one-year contract extension.

The 36-year-old Brazilian – who joined the Citizens from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013 for £34 million – has helped the club win 12 domestic championships over his nine-year run, including four English Premier League titles and six UEFA Champions League (UCL) titles.

And it is his love for winning gold, along with City losing to Chelsea in last month’s UCL final, that motivated Fernandinho’s decision to stick with the club until 2022.

Speaking to City’s official website on Tuesday, 29 June, he explained: “In my head and my mind, the job is not done yet, and so that’s why I decided to stay here another year, and try to help the team and the club to achieve the goals that they’re looking for.”

Fernandinho added: “If I can keep doing the same way, leading them inside the pitch, off the pitch, to help them to improve and get better and to perform better during the games, I would be the most happy [sic] person there.”
