Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has spoken out on his future as he is entering the last 12 months of his contract at the club.
Fernandinho insists he will play football as long as he feels happy and motivated.
“To be honest I just thank god for giving me a body that I can do this,” said Fernandinho.
“Every three days, I have to be mentally ready and improve my body to be ready. Of course, I take care of myself, but we have great staff taking care of us behind the scenes which helps because first you have to get the mind ready and then the body and just go on.”
“I always say I’ll play until my mind will allow me to play,” he continued.
“When I feel happy and motivated to play every day this is important. To train happy and fresh everyday so until I don’t feel like this, I will play, but I don’t want to say until 37, 38…40; we shall see.”
During this season, the 24-year-old has made 9 appearances so far for Manchester City.
