Breaking: Pep Guardiola to miss next two matches due to back surgery
Posted : 22 August 2023
Manchester City's head coach, Pep Guardiola, is poised to be absent from the sidelines for the upcoming duo of Premier League encounters for his team due to a minor back surgery he recently underwent.
The club issued a statement outlining that Guardiola, aged 52, had been contending with significant back discomfort, compelling him to undertake an "emergency" surgical procedure in Barcelona.
As City embarks on their journey to play against Sheffield United this Sunday, followed by a home match against Fulham at the Etihad Stadium on September 2, Guardiola's absence will be notable.
Anticipating a full recovery, Guardiola is expected to make his return to his managerial duties following the conclusion of the international break.
