Fernandinho renewed his contract with Manchester City for another year. He will remain at the Etihad until the summer of 2022. The Brazilian will start his ninth season with the "citizens".
Fernandinho proved to be one of the best defensive midfielders in the world.
He has 350 games for Manchester City. The 36-year-old has won 12 trophies with the "citizens", including four Premier League trophies and a record six League Cups.
"In my head and in my mind, the work is not done yet," Fernandinho commented.
