Pep Guardiola confirms ‘4-5’ injury concerns ahead of FA Cup final

Manchester City have some injury concerns ahead of the FA Cup final.


Manchester City ended their Premier League campaign as champions with a 1-0 loss to Brentford.

They will now turn their attention towards their remaining two games of the season.

First up is an FA Cup final with Manchester United on June 3.

Ahead of that game, Pep Guardiola has revealed that Man City have quite a lot of their top stars suffering with niggles.

This includes Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne and Ruben Dias:

“We have four or five players with niggles, not big injuries, but they are injuries. The guys who didn’t play didn’t here were really, really exhausted the day before and mentally, they were completely drained. The guys who are in Manchester - Ruben didn’t train for 10 days, Jack Grealish, as well,” Pep said.

“After the game against Brighton, Kevin felt the same feelings that he had before, weeks ago when he could not play a few games. It is what it is. It’s not a big issue, I think they will be ready. They have to be ready for the training sessions and I am going to see them in three days and that’s why today was so important to see these players and how they are.

“Phil is in incredible form, Riyad as well, Cole was so active in many things. To play the finals we have to play the guys who feel better. Not because they played a lot of minutes. That’s why it was good to play with these guys and rest the other ones and hopefully the other ones can recover.”

The City fans will be praying that these injury concerns are resolved on June 10 when their side face Inter Milan in the Champions League final.
