Guardiola apologizes to Kalvin Phillips

Premier League: Guardiola apologizes to Kalvin Phillips:

Pep Guardiola spoke about one of the players who joined Manchester City in the summer of 2022 in the English team: Kalvin Phillips. The football player arrived from Leeds for 49 million euros and, this season, he only started once, in the League Cup against Newcastle.where this is the first title lost to the ‘Cityzen’ team this season.

“I don’t know what will happen with Kalvin Phillips. He has a good character, I regret not lining him up”, says the Santpedor coach about a player whose departure rumors are planned next month. “I imagine my team and choose a team and it is difficult for me to see it,” he added about the possibilities that the former England National Team starting center could have more minutes.

“He was not injured, he arrived overweight. He did not arrive in conditions to train and play”. Guardiola was just as forceful when asked about Kalvin Phillips after the World Cup in Qatar, where he lost the starting job in favor of Bellingham, Henderson and Rice. “When he’s ready he’ll play, because we need him”. And he didn’t need it, because Manchester City won the Triplet with Kalvin Phillips who played only 330 minutes between the Premier League and the Champions League last season, without injuries.

No rush with De Bruyne

The Catalan coach also talked about one of Manchester City’s key players: Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian was injured in August, on the first day of the season, and although he has already started training on the pitch and is on the list for the Club World Cup, Guardiola wants to be careful: “Kevin will come back if he does, we will not force him, and if he comes back we will welcome him with open arms. We were first not long ago, but now we are playing against Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs and Villa , top teams.”
