UCL: Guardiola confirms player to miss Man City, PSG clash
Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has confirmed the player who will miss his side’s Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night at Etihad Stadium.
According to Guardiola, playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne, will not take part in Man City’s clash with PSG as he continues to self-isolate following a positive COVID-19 test.
The Citizen manager also said he would assess Jack Grealish’s fitness before making a decision on whether to select him for the PSG game.
Guardiola’s side head to the game following a 3-0 victory over Everton in the Premier League last weekend.
“Jack is much better,” Guardiola was quoted by Man City’s official website as saying at his pre-match press conference.
“[There are] some niggles for some players. Tomorrow [Wednesday] we have the last training session and we will decide then who will play.
“Unfortunately, Kevin is not available [for the game against PSG].
“I don’t know [when his isolation period ends]. We will do another PCR test and then hopefully it will be negative and he will be back.”
The kick-off time for the game is 9 pm.
