Fernandinho starts! Brazilian announces he will play for Man City v Newcastle on Twitter


There must be rules at Manchester City against this kind of thing…

Over two hours before Manchester City face Newcastle on Monday night, Fernandinho has told his 46,000 followers that he will make his Premier League debut.

Not earth shattering sure, but pretty rare in today’s football. Doubt we will be seeing this from Fernandinho during the rest of the season.
