Manchester City will be facing Chelsea without one of their ‘hottest’ players since the start of the season, as Sergio Aguero broke a rib in a taxi accident in Amsterdam on his day off.
Pep Guardiola talked to the Press ahead of this mega match, and couldn’t avoid a series of Kun-related questions, including this one: do you think he should apologise?
Why should he apologise to me? No. And Mendy too?
the Man City manager answered, referring to Benjamin Mendy as well, who got seriously injured during the game against Crystal Palace and will stay sidelined until April.
I don’t know what the supporters think. Some of them can be upset, some not. At the end it’s fortunate the injury is not bad. He is healthy. Accidents happen, he’s alive
Guardiola also said. Accident-aside, the Catalan looked perfectly fine with the fact that Aguero chose to spend his day off abroad, attending a concert, rather that staying at home to rest, given that in 48 hours he had a big game coming up.
I don’t want to know what my players do. They are fathers, they have a full responsibility on their shoulders – on and off the pitch. I have a private life, my family. I am concerned with what they have to do on the pitch. That’s all
the City manager said.
