Fernando has revealed that he intends to keep answering his critics after a stellar performance in City’s win over Crystal Palace in the League Cup.
Fernando made 22 EPL starts in his first season with Manchester City, but failed to star all that well following a series of injuries.
In recent times though, Fernando has put up the performance that made City pay a reported £12 million to Porto for his services.
“My name will only be recognised in this club from the moment we actually start winning trophies,” he is quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“I know that I have to improve, but that is what I will keep doing. Only when we things, and I am contributing something, will my name become known at this club.”
Fernando says that his hit-and-miss first season was due to returning too soon from a groin problem.
“When you are not at 100 per cent it is hard, especially in the Premier League, and that is what happened to me last season,” he added.
“But I am back from my injury and playing well. I feel fit and that is the best aspect of it.”
