Player Profile

The most surprising thing about Fernando's move to Manchester City from Porto in the summer of 2014 was that it had taken so long for a club outside of Portugal to prise him away from the Estadio Dragao. 

Born in Brazil, Fernando began his career in his homeland with Vila Nova, but it would be a 2007 move to Porto, renowned for their extensive South American scouting network, that would be the making of the young midfielder. 

An impressive season out on loan at Estrela da Amadora convinced Porto that the 20-year-old was ready to be recalled and in the 2008-09 season he became a regular for the Dragons -- with his performances in the club's narrow Champions League last-16 defeat to Manchester United proving he was unfazed by the big stage. 

Just as Lucho Gonzalez, Hulk, Falcao and James Rodriguez have done in recent years, Fernando seamlessly made the transition from South American to European football with Porto and his importance to the team as a midfield enforcer continued to grow with each passing season. Silverware was racked up in the form of the Primeira Liga title in his debut campaign and a Portuguese Cup in his second year, but it was the 2010-11 season that would prove most memorable as continental glory was added to domestic dominance -- Andre Villas-Boas' all-conquering side winning a league, cup and Europa League treble with Fernando at the heart of the side, an immovable defensive midfield monolith. 

More than just a straight-up steadfast blocker, Villas-Boas made Fernando see that he could be more of an adventurous, well-rounded player. Before AVB, he rarely ventured past the centre circle. As Porto soared in a remarkable 2010-11 season -- winning a treble of league, cup and Europa League -- Fernando started to bring the ball out of his own half, to press further up the pitch and to make the play. It was the period in which he began to develop into the modern, more versatile defensive midfielder that all of Europe's top clubs desire today.

As many of his more high-profile attacking teammates began to leave, many onlookers were left wondering how long Porto would be able to keep Fernando, but despite his importance to the team he seemed to be the best-kept secret in European football.

Eventually he was outed, however, and it was Manchester City who won the race for his signature. After seven years and four league titles at Porto the midfielder, nicknamed "the Octopus" because his long legs seem to be able to thwart opponents no matter how unpromising the angle, completed a move to the Etihad Stadium in June 2014. 

Strengths: A physical specimen, Fernando's talent also lies in his ability to anticipate opponent's movement and get in the right place at the right time to make the interception or challenge. 

Weaknesses: Although not really in his remit, Fernando's finishing is pretty abysmal -- the midfielder scored just two goals in 142 league games for Porto. 

Career high: Winning a treble of domestic league and cup, plus the Europa League, with Porto in 2011. 

Career low: Assaulting referee Alberto Duarte while on international duty with Brazil at the 2007 South American Youth Championship. Fernando was banned from all CONMEBOL competitions for a year as a result of the incident. 

Style: A powerful, combative defensive midfielder -- a tenacious tackler. 

Quotes: "I remember people started calling me Polvo (Octopus) but I didn't really understand why. Later they told me it was because I ran a lot, because I seemed to be everywhere and had lots of legs. It was an encouraging sign of recognition for me." Fernando on his Cephalopodic nickname

Trivia: Fernando Reges already had something in common with one of his Manchester City teammates when he arrived as both he and Vincent Kompany are among just six players in the Premier League who wear the boots of American manufacturer Warrior.
