Known as the “The Octopus” as a result of a headline grabbing performance in the 2009 Champions League in which he dominated the Manchester United midfield.
His breakout season is considered to be the 2010/2011campaign, when the Brazilian clocked up more than 3,000 minutes field time as FC Porto claimed a league, cup and Europa League treble.
Earning a move to Manchester City last year, Fernando has brought the same dogged enthusiasm, skill and aggression to the Premier League, sending fear through the top flight English football.
“I never want to give up, never want to give ground to people, and never want to be second best. When I look at the history of New Balance and see all of the different athletes they have worked with, I see a brand that believes in exactly same, a brand that demands that all its players have the support to help them perform to best of their ability.”
