Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City's perfect Premier League start is down to unsung hero Fernandinho
Forget Sergio Aguero or David Silva, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says the club's 100 per cent start to the Premier League season is down to unsung Brazilian hero Fernandinho.
Guardiola has managed iconic midfield players like Xavi and Andres Iniesta in the past so his effusive praise for 31-year-old Fernandinho is noteworthy.
'What has happened until now would have been impossible without him. If a team has three Fernandinhos, they would be champions,' said Guardiola, who has won all six Premier League games before Sunday's visit to title rivals Spurs.
