Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, declared that his team was now “in trouble” when Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva joined the team’s long list of injured players.
Silva was forced to leave Tuesday’s 3-1 home victory over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League opener before halftime. Silva signed a one-year deal last month that will keep him at City until 2026.
Key players Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, Jack Grealish, and Mateo Kovacic are already injured for City.
Guardiola remarked, “He (Silva) didn’t say anything at the end.” He won’t be able to play in the upcoming games, according to the physicians I did not talk with.
The league’s top team, City, will play home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday in an attempt to make it six wins in a row, but Guardiola is concerned about the effects of having so many important players out at once.
He told reporters, “We are in danger, but I’m not going to say, ‘Oh, we have a lot of injuries.
It will be challenging for us to continue playing with five injured crucial players for an extended period. But that is how things are.
