Code rood bij Manchester City: 'noodsituatie' baart Guardiola zorgen
© ProShots Code rood bij Manchester City: ‘noodsituatie’ baart Guardiola zorgen

Manchester City reist woensdag met een flinke uitgedunde selectie naar Birmingham voor het uitduel met Aston Villa. Manager Pep Guardiola spreekt zelfs van een noodsituatie.

City kampt met een waslijst aan afwezigen. Ferran Torres is afgehaakt met een voetblessure, Aymeric Laporte zit een schorsing uit en Kevin De Bruyne is niet wedstrijdfit. De Belg was onlangs besmet met het coronavirus, maar is ondanks een negatieve test nog niet klaar om aan te haken bij de groepstraining. Achter de namen van Phil Foden en Jack Grealish staat nog een vraagteken.

Met het moordende schema van The Citizens, die in de komende zes weken liefst negen Premier League-duels spelen, is de nood hoog bij Guardiola. ‘We bevinden ons in een noodsituatie, omdat we weinig, weinig, weinig mensen hebben’, zei de Spaanse oefenmeester op de persconferentie in aanloop naar de wedstrijd tegen Villa.

Vertrouwen

‘Normaal gesproken klagen we nooit als we spelers missen door blessures of rode kaarten, omdat ik veel vertrouwen heb in de ploeg’, sprak Guardiola. ‘Maar voor december, de zwaarste maand van het jaar, hebben we echt een probleem. We hebben maar veertien of vijftien spelers over en de meeste spelers hebben al heel veel minuten gespeeld.’

Manchester City speelt woensdag het uitduel met Aston Villa, zaterdag wacht alweer een bezoek aan promovendus Watford.
