Bio: With an explosive turn of pace, marathon lung power and the ability to break up opposition moves, Fernandinho is a formidable figure in City’s midfield.

Although he would be primarily described as a defensive midfielder, the 5ft 9 twinkle-toed Brazilian also possesses a rocket of a shot to make him a threat to the opposition in both halves of the field.

Swapping Ukraine for Manchester in 2013, Fernandinho made an immediate impact, becoming a key piece of the jigsaw in the club’s engine room and making 41 appearances as City lifted the Premier League title and Capital One Cup in his first season in England.

Establishing a reputation as one of Brazil’s most promising young talents during three years with Atletico Paranaense, he played a key role in his country’s World Youth Championship triumph of 2003.

Seizing the chance to develop his career in the European arena, he signed for Shakhtar Donetsk in 2005. A million miles from Brazil in distance, culture and climate, Fernandinho held barbecues in his garage to combat the weather while on the pitch his career was hotting up.

He left for City after eight years in Ukraine with 14 medals in his suitcase, including the UEFA Cup and six Ukrainian Premier League titles, while honing his craft on the Champions League stage.

A pair of medals in England helped Fernandinho earn a starting berth for Brazil in time for the 2014 World Cup, and he shows no signs of stopping just yet.
