Manchester City’s Fernandinho not blaming World Cup humiliation for poor form this season

Fernandinho has said he’s focused on getting back to his best form for Manchester City, while refuting claims that he’s still getting over Brazil’s World Cup thrashing this summer, reports the Express.

The 29-year-old turned in a poor performance in the Brazil side who were thrashed 7-1 in their World Cup semi-final clash against eventual winners Germany. But he dismissed rumours that he’s still getting over it.

“When I came back to Manchester I just put my head towards the Premier League and Champions League. The World Cup is history. Now I just think about City and try to give my best performances and do the same thing as I did last season. I am working hard every day. I will try to do my best. Selection is the manager’s decision and you have to respect that,” he said.

Fernandinho has been a shadow of last season, and it’s seen him lose his starting place in the midfield. But with injury to David Silva and Frank Lampard, he could start in tonight‘s Champions League game against CSKA Moscow.
