Injury crisis continue at Manchester City

Manchester City

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson sustained injury at Nottingham Forest. The 30-year-old shot-stopper was forced out of action at half-time of Manchester City’s 0-2 win at the City Ground. He got injured through a clash with Nuno Espirito Santo’s centre-back Willy Boly. This continues the Injury crisis for Manchester City.

Manchester City manager after the match issued a word of warning around the severity of the problem, as he told journalists, “It doesn’t look good. We see tomorrow (Monday) with the doctor.” This can be a concerning matter for both Manchester City and Ederson.

City’s goalkeeper has been out from action for the majority of the season now. He was spotted leaving the City Ground with the rest of his Manchester City teammates with his arm and shoulder in a sling. However the reports on Ederson’s latest injury setback sustained against Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon ‘do not show an injury’. The Brazilian goalkeeper will return to Manchester City training ‘in the next few days’.

Injury crisis gave Manchester City a new hero

As the Injury crisis continues Pep Guardiola can rely on German shotstopper Stefan Ortega. Ortega has given incredible performances this season. Moreover this season Ortega only conceded 6 goals between the sticks. He brought great stability between the sticks and showed great character. However Manchester City will have surely expected to finish the season with their first choice keeper. After all they still have to face Tottenham away where they mostly struggle.

Speaking during a recent interview on the decision that he will have to make in the near future, Ortega told German media, “It’s not such a difficult topic. Me and my family, we feel super comfortable in Manchester. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world. That’s why there aren’t so many arguments against it.

“But it’s not all my decision alone. There are also two parties involved, the club and the player. I’m quite relaxed about it. There’s a lot to be said for staying here.”
