Fernandinho to stay at Manchester City club until the 2021/22 season

Football News

Fernandinho has agreed to a one-year contract extension with Manchester City, which will hold him at the club until the 2021/22 season.
The Brazilian’s playing time has been restricted this season, but his leadership and experience have been instrumental in City’s return to the Premier League championship. Since the departure of David Silva last summer, he has captained the club and is a favorite of Pep Guardiola.

As Sergio Aguero’s contract expired in the summer, there were concerns he might follow him out the door. The 36-year-old had previously stated that he was considering returning to South America to get more consistent playing time, but that he would not decide until after the Champions League.

The 36-year-old was recently rumored to be seeking a move to South America to get more consistent playing time, but that he will not decide until after the Champions League final on May 29.

However, The Telegraph quickly followed up with reports that he was set to remain at City for another year. The New York Times now claims to have reported this, claiming that an agreement has been reached to keep him on the team for at least another season.

Fernandinho announced in April in his Player’s Tribune column that Guardiola had assigned him the task. The task was of turning to the season around in January when City’s title hopes seemed to be dwindling. It’s a burden he’s risen to. In 2021, City has won 32 of its 36 games. And is on the verge of a historic cup and Champions League double.

“It was a dreadful session. It was just evident, the mood, the body language, the effort from some teams.” He said of their New Year’s Eve training session.

“You’re familiar with the kind of session I’m referring to, right? Passes that were misplaced, players that did not trackback, who did not drive, and who did not seem involved. This was not the case for us. This was not the team that had won two championships in a row or set a point total record. After the session, Pep approached me as captain and team leader and talked to me. He was direct. He told me that not everybody was at 100%. And when you come to practice with this band, you either give it your all or sit at home. There is no discussion or bargaining until you reach the pitch. He was right. And he made it obvious that I was solely responsible for upholding those expectations.”

Fernandinho has accepted the burden. This may justify why he is willing to stay for another season to help the club defend their Premier League title.
