Manchester City will face the absence of one of their key players, Bernardo Silva, as they enter a busy run of games. The injury woes of the treble winning team grew after their star midfielder suffered an injury during the first group game of the UEFA Champions League against Red Star Belgrade. The Portuguese International is expected to be sidelined for several upcoming matches.
In Tuesday’s Champions League group stage match on, Jeremy Doku was brought in during the first half to replace Bernardo Silva.
Pep Guardiola, Manchester City’s manager, openly acknowledged the challenges his team faces as the list of injured players continues to grow.
Manchester City’s manager, Pep Guardiola had this to say;
He (Silva) didn’t say anything at the end,” Guardiola said. “I didn’t speak with the doctors, but apparently, for the next games, he won’t be able to play. We are in trouble but I am not going to say, ‘Oh, we have a lot of injuries. When we have five important players, really, really important players injured, to sustain that for a long time will be difficult. But it is what it is.
