Fernandinho: Manchester City midfielder signs contract extension until 2020

Brazilian worldwide Fernandinho rated by Guardiola as one of the three best defensive midfielders in the world signed a two year extension to his contract on Friday.

The Argentina global, who leads the Premier League in completed passes with 2033, is enjoying his best season at the Etihad Stadium since arriving in 2015 and praised the impact Guardiola has had on his game.

The energetic holding midfielder also scored in the League Cup final victory in 2016 and has thus far netted 19 goals in 212 appearances in all competitions for the English giants.

"I am learning every day under Pep and enjoying my football and I feel I can still improve as a player".

"It's a pleasure to be a part of this Club and I look forward to seeing what the next few years bring".

The 32-year-old midfielder has signed a deal through to June 2020 and says his position as a role model to younger players feels odd but is one he is adapting to. He is a senior member of the squad and his professionalism and work ethic are second to none. An extension of two-years was granted to the player earlier today, and rightfully so after having a fantastic season under the Spaniard. "We need to anticipate it now".

"When Man United, Liverpool and the other clubs in Europe do what they do, I respect".

He told reporters, "He [Pep] has worked with a lot of great players".
