He’s back! Pep Guardiola returns to Man City after emergency surgery



Sharing buttons

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has returned to the club after recovering from an emergency operation on “severe back pain” in Barcelona.


The Spaniard was all smiles as he took charge of training, with his squad returning from international duty to prepare for their trip to in-form West Ham.


Guardiola will return to the City bench on Saturday after missing two games having undergone emergency back surgery.


City will be glad to welcome their boss back. They took all six points during their two games under stand-in manager Juanma Lillo, although did have to overcome some difficult moments against newly-promoted Sheffield United and benefitted from some nonsensical officiating at home to Fulham.


Guardiola’s back problems may have eased, but fellow pace-setters West Ham will be hoping to make the City gaffer uncomfortable when the sides meet at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon
