Fernandinho: How the Brazil International Could Be an Asset to Pep Guardiola as a Centre Back

?It's evident that Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are as good any team, well, ever, having won consecutive Premier League titles and claimed a domestic treble during the 2018/19 campaign.

Guardiola has previously complemented the Brazil international, suggesting he is capable of playing anywhere on the pitch, so now could be the ideal time for him to convert to a central defender both for the side's sake and his own.

With Otamendi and Stones perhaps not entirely meeting the extremely high standards Pep sets, Fernandinho could provide a different option as well as further cover should injury strike throughout an arduous Premier League campaign.

Brazilian defensive midfielder Fernandinho has fallen down the pecking order following the big-money arrival of former ?Atletico Madrid man Rodri, who has already settled well in the early stages of his City career.

He's extremely unlikely to replace ?Stones or Otamendi as Laporte's first choice defensive partner, but it's always wise to have plenty of cover, which he could comfortably provide as both a central midfielder and defender.

But choosing not to splash the cash - as they often do - on another central defender might be a wise choice with a possible solution already lying within their ranks.

And if Fernandinho still wishes to make somewhat regular appearances in the starting lineup, a willingness to play in a different position would certainly be of benefit on a personal note.
