Guardiola Sings Praises of ‘Fundamental’ Fernandinho
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola sang the praises of midfielder Fernandinho, who scored during the team’s 5-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.
The Brazilian steered home City’s third past Joe Hart and Guardiola took the opportunity to talk up the 33 year old’s performance.
“Fernandinho was extraordinary, "he said." Today Fernandinho was smart, with the physical form he has, every time he received the ball he was ready.
“He was incredible. Today he had one of the best performances of the season. He is a fundamental player for us.”
City travel to Ukraine to take on Fernandinho’s former club Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
