Manchester City ‘was perfect’ for Fernandinho
The player’s agent, Daisy Brandino, has been speaking to GloboEsporte.com about the midfielder’s journey to the World Cup in Brazil.
Fernandinho tasked Brandino with securing him a move so that he could win a place with the national team.
Brandino said that the £34 million transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk to the current English Premier League champions was crucial to the player’s World Cup hopes.
She said: "When I saw that City were changing the board, putting together a new structure, I thought it was perfect. It was a place which would suit a player arriving from Ukraine, [with] many new people, excellent players."
The move and Fernandinho’s inclusion in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s World Cup squad stem from the player’s self-belief, according to his agent.
"He was sure he could get in the team, and he has," said Brandino.
