Fernando insists he can play in same Man City team as Fernandinho

Fernando says he and Fernandinho can play in the same Manchester City team.

The pair are similar players.

But Fernando told City's website: "I think it is possible that we could both play a holding role for City. He likes to join the attack so I could stay back while he went forward, but we will see.

"I remember seeing him play for Shakhtar Donetsk but I was even more impressed last season because he had such a good first year in England and he has become e very important player for City already."
