Some of the concern expressed both by Manchester City fans and football journalists, was that City had paid what appeared to be an excessive fee for a player who was somewhat unknown.

Given Fernandinho now appears to be fit and ready to play again we should not at all be surprised if he assumes a new Centre Back role – stepping up into midfield with the ball at his feet like Bobby Moore.



The question remains as to what role Fernandinho may play this season.



In his time in Ukrainian football he had played as a attacking midfielder, a left sided midfielder, a right sided midfielder, a central midfielder and a defensive midfielder.

Pep Guardiola has started this discussion by suggesting we are likely to see Fernandinho employed in central defence this year.

He can rotate the play with a simple pass and move, converting defence to attack.

Some concern was about the age of the player – 28 years old at the time of the move – and heading towards the twilight of his career.
