The current international break has been quite dramatic, with concerns over players having to quarantine and whether or not they’re following the correct rules.
Usually, when clubs send their players off to national teams, the major worry is injuries, yet this time that’s been edged to the side slightly.
Manchester City don’t have the quarantine issues some other clubs are dealing with, but they do have fitness concerns. On that note, AS report Aymeric Laporte is suffering from a ‘muscular overload in the right adductor’.
The defender left the pitch midway through Spain’s 4-0 victory over Georgia, and there’s doubts over when he’ll be fit to play.
Facing Kosovo away on Wednesday, AS say the Manchester City player isn’t yet completely ruled out, but there are concerns about whether he’ll be available for the match.
Given it’s a muscle injury, Pep Guardiola will hope Spain treat the situation with every caution, with the Premier League champions clearly not wanting Laporte to return with the issue made worse.
