Manchester City captain Fernandinho has agreed a one-year contract extension to stay at the club until summer 2022.
The experienced midfielder, who turned 36 in May, will complete a ninth season next summer after arriving in 2013 from Shakhtar Donestsk.
Over 350 appearances in eight years later he has picked up 12 domestic trophies in his time at the club and also became the joint-most decorated player in League Cup history after lifting a sixth Carabao Cup last season.
He was also pivotal in motivating the team to win the 2020/21 Premier League title after a slow start left them in danger of missing out on Champions League football next season.
Fernandinho instead led the club to their first ever UEFA Champions League final in the same season and proved himself to be an invaluable influence on the squad for City boss Pep Guardiola.
Commenting on his deal, Fernandinho said: “In my head and my mind, the job is not done yet.”
“And so that’s why I decided to stay here another year and try to help the team and the Club to achieve the goals that they’re looking for.
“In my point of view, we can do that, there’s still places to improve and to get those targets.
“And obviously, for me and for my family it’s a pleasure to stay in Manchester for one more year.
“If I can keep doing the same way, leading them inside the pitch, off the pitch, to help them to improve and get better and to perform better during the games, I would be the most happy person there.
Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “Fernandinho’s contribution to Manchester City cannot be overstated.
“He is an outstanding footballer – one of the best in the world in his position – and an exemplary professional.
“Since he arrived in 2013, his attitude and consistency have been exceptional, and he has developed into one of our most influential players.
“He is our captain; our leader and it is a position he has excelled in. There are a number of talented young players in our squad and, therefore, it is vital we have somebody with Fernandinho’s knowledge and experience.
“He remains an important player for us and we are delighted he has committed to another year.”
