​Fernandinho happy at centre-half for Man City

Fernandinho says he has enjoyed playing at centre-back for Manchester City.

The 34-year-old midfielder has been impressive in defence, having had to fill-in during City's injury crisis.

"It's good as long as you can be at the highest level," the Brazilian told ESPN.

"Playing in a different position opens up the range of learning.

"In defence, I see the game in a different way. It has been very cool and the guidance I have received from Pep has been very good.

"At 34, playing in the Premier League is a source of pride. Many, many players wanted to be experiencing what I am experiencing."
