The availability of two stars in his Manchester City squad has given Juanma Lillo, who is filling in for Pep Guardiola this weekend, more confidence.
In order to recover from urgent back surgery in Barcelona, Manchester City’s head coach will miss the team’s Sunday afternoon trip to Bramall Lane to play Sheffield United. He is not anticipated to make a comeback until after the forthcoming international break.
As a result, Juanma Lillo, his dependable assistant, will oversee all first-team practices in the interim and assume touchline duties against the Premier League newcomers as well as against Fulham at the Etihad Stadium before the break.
Lillo, who rejoined the team this summer after accepting a managerial position with Al Sadd, has been encouraged by the availability of two stars for his Manchester City team ahead of the weekend, including a fresh face to the team overall.
Bernardo Silva will be back for Manchester City this weekend and available for the game against Sheffield United, according to the information provided by renowned X user FPLMaineRoad. Silva had missed the previous two games due to sickness.
It is also claimed that Jeremy Doku has completed his move to Manchester City from Stade Rennais and has been registered in time for the weekend’s games. At this point, the only thing left is for the club to make an official announcement.
Doku, who is likely to offer Pep Guardiola’s systems a significantly different dimension from the other wide forwards on the club, arrives at the Etihad Stadium with a reputation for being a bother for opposing defenders.
This week, Manchester City and Ligue 1 team Rennes came to an agreement for the sale of Belgian international, with a transfer cost of approximately €65 million being agreed.
However, City is still engaged in the ongoing summer transfer market. As a result of Kevin De Bruyne’s long-term injury suffered against Burnley, City is currently stepping up its interest in Matheus Nunes, a Portuguese international center midfielder for Wolves.
