A very bitter pill for those who stick with Manchester City and / or Ilkay Gündogan: The midfielder will miss the upcoming great games of the English champions.
In the last 1-0 win against Chelsea, Ilkay Gündogan was not part of the Skyblues squad due to a thigh injury. On Monday, Pep Guardiola finally confirmed that the ex-Dortmund will only be available again in mid-October.
This means that Gündogan will not only miss the upcoming Champions League hit against PSG (September 28), but also the subsequent Premier League highlight against Liverpool (October 3). A major weakening for the Cityzens, who could have used the 30-year-old extremely well in this top game week, because with Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden two other offensive creative minds have only recently returned to the game.
In the last duel with the LFC, which the Cityzens won 4-1 at Anfield Road, Gündogan was also the match winner of the English champions with a double.
The injury to the City-Star is of course also annoying for Hansi Flick, who will not be able to fall back on the midfielder’s services during the upcoming international break (early to mid-October).
