Stuttgart blitz Man City; Pellegrini’s side recover to only lose 4-2 (Official Highlights)

Manchester City fans began to worry about their side on Saturday as their final pre-season friendly produced a shocking first half.

Stuttgart took a 15th minute lead through Filip Kostic and then took control of the game with three goals in six first-half minutes.

Daniel Didavi (31), Daniel Ginczek (36 and 37) secured a morale boosting win for Stuttgart.

Manchester City’s goals came late on, in the 84th and 89th minutes from Kelechi Iheanacho and Edin Dzeko.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina striker may well have played his final game for City, with a move to Roma now heavily rumoured, especially from reliable sources in Italy.
