Manchester City defender John Stones suffers an injury

Sharing is Caring

Manchester City and England defender John Stones has been ruled out for up to 6 weeks due to injury.  Stones suffered a muscular injury during a training session at Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv ahead of a Champions League tie against Shaktar Donestk tonight.

This is a huge blow to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola because he is only left with one fit first team central defender (Nicholas Otamendi). Manchester City failed to sign a replacement for Vincent Kompany who left the club at the end of last season. Aymeric Laporte is also ruled out until February 2020 with a knee surgery. 

Stones recently returned for Manchester City on Saturday after recovering from another injury as his side fell to a 3-2 shock defeat at Norwich. It was his first appearance in the Premier League since Opening day win at West Ham.

Pep Guardiola said yesterday: ‘’ Stones is out for four, five or six weeks. He was injured this morning. It is a muscular problem. For me as a manager it is an incredible challenge. But I believe in something people don’t know about-Spirit and commitment. We will make steps forward to solve this problem’’
