Fernandinho hungry for City success

Fernandinho has revealed that he forfeited £4 million to realise his ambitions by joining Manchester City.

• Mooney: City set to strike back in Premier League

The Brazilian midfielder, who was a £30 million signing from Shakhtar Donetsk, said he would have made more money had he stayed in the Ukraine.

"Why should people be surprised by that?" he told British Sunday papers. "Maybe England should have more players who don’t only think of money.

"If I only wanted money and a comfortable life from my career, I would have stayed in the Ukraine.

"I was in Donetsk for eight years and I was happy there. I won six titles, I knew everyone and I was a big part of the club.

"But I was presented with the challenge of coming to Manchester City. The owner and the people who are managing the team want to win titles and other trophies, and I wanted to be a part of that. I came here to win. Of course I will be paid as a professional footballer but the only thing I am greedy for is success.

"In my country, we say that football is like a huge plate of food -- well, I want to eat everything because I want to win every trophy I can for Manchester City."

And the 28-year-old revealed that he could have joined either Chelsea or Tottenham before signing for City.

"I know there were negotiations between Shakhtar and Chelsea. Shakhtar told me they had refused an offer. There was also a stage a year ago when I spoke to people from Tottenham but nothing came of that."
