Fernandinho Misses Ukraine

Fernandinho admits there are times when he misses Ukraine.
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!"
