Guardiola Thankful for ‘Gift’ Fernandinho
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on midfielder Fernandinho ahead of tonight’s Champions League quarter-final 1 st . leg against Liverpool at Anfield.
Fernandinho joined the club in 2013 from Shakhtar Donetsk and the Spanish boss says he is delighted to have inherited the Brazilian.
Guardiola said, “Everything we have done so far we couldn’t have done it without him. No way. It wouldn’t have been possible on and off the pitch.
“He is a real captain, he always shows up, never hides. Normally, he plays well. He’s a gift for me to have him here at City.
“One of the big memories when I am not manager here at Manchester City will be the pleasure to have been his manager. I am so happy to have him here.”
