The summer signing from Shakhtar Donetsk has admitted that he is struggling because he does not speak the language at present.
Fernandinho: "When I was playing at Shakhtar there were other Brazilian footballers, but here at Man City there aren't any.
"It is a little complicated because I don't speak English so when my team mates are talking in English I don't understand what they are talking about.
"When I was at Shakhtar, I had Brazilian team-mates and I used to spend time with them, but here I'm alone. I see and talk with [Manchester United's] Rafael and Anderson but not all the time. So yes, I miss Ukraine sometimes.
"I came to England because I thought it would help me to get back in the Brazilian national team.
"I'm not thinking about moving back to Brazil as I want to end my career in Europe, and I think about playing 10 more years!"
