Fernandinho Doesn’t Think He Is Missed In City Midfield
Manchester City’s Fernandinho denies that his presence is missed in midfield after moving to centre-half due to the club’s defensive injury crisis.
The Brazilian moved into the heart of the defence after injuries to Laporte and Stones and the signing of Rodri from Atletico Madrid.
Many suggest Fernandinho’s presence is missed in the middle of the pitch, but the player himself counters that suggestion.
“I don't think I am being missed in midfield. Rodri is playing really well there. Of course, we are a little bit different but he's doing really well.
“The job you do at the back is so important as you help to defend and attack. The culture is that whoever scores goals gets the spotlight but it depends on everyone.
“You have to protect your defensive line and when you have the ball try to give players in front the ball to attack and create chances."
