Fernandinho believes that this Manchester City side is the best team he has seen and been on since his tenure started. The Brazilian star talked about that, expectations and much more.

Let’s see what he said-

“There was still that stigma of the fact that the team had never made it to the final before, that we were an inexperienced team in this competition,”

“But I think this season our team has managed to reach a high standard, both on a technical level and in terms of experience, and several other factors as well.

“Over the course of the season, we’ve overcome many difficulties, and now we’ve reached a standard which is perhaps one of the highest this team has ever managed to reach.

“It’s a really happy moment, a huge honour, and there’s no doubt that it makes you even more motivated.

“We’ve always got to give 100%, 100% of the time, and I think in a game like this anything less than 200% won’t be enough to win it.”

“There’s no doubt that as I’m a captain and the most senior of the club’s players, this is the point when you need to step up and try to organise things for the good of the team.

“Sometimes it’s easy for a person to lose their head when under a lot of stress or pressure, so I tried to stop players from falling into this trap so to not harm the team’s performance.

“Playing in a game at this level with a player like this makes a big difference.”

Ferna is a true leader and natural captain. He will play a role in thus UCL Final whether on the pitch or behind the scenes. That bodes well for City.
