Emobot7 1 month ago 490 10965 New concept here, a thread to look back on player whose career at the top level is mostly over (either because they are retiring or moving back to smaller league to "retire" from top level football). In this first thread, I wanted to have a look back at a player whose generally well regarded by the fans but also not commented on a lot. I'm talking about Fernandinho, whose leaving Manchester City to go back to his first club, Athletico Paranaense. So yeah, looking back on Fernandinho career, its interesting to see he played a long time for Shakhtar Donestk before joining City. I will concede I didn't know that. As for the kind of player he's been in England, I really saw him as a player of the shadow, working hard in defense and having a solid passing capacity as well in offense. In short, a very complete player that worked well with Pep philosophy. Also, I feel we don't mention it enough but I doubt City would have had the kind of success it had in recent years if he wouldn't have been at the club. I strongly believe he played a big role for City to say the least. Thought on the player and the legacy he made for himself?
