Manchester City Midfielder Set to return , gets closer to a first-team return.

Manchester City Midfielder Set to return , gets closer to a first-team return.

Ilkay Gundogan’s battle to regain full fitness is going so well the German international can afford to take a break.

The Manchester City midfielder came through an EDS run-out in the 2-2 draw with Leicester last Friday.

And he has given a fitness update as he gets closer to a first-team return.

Gundogan suffered a knee injury against Watford midway through last season and following his reserve team exertions is ready to ‘recharge his batteries’.

He posted on Instagram to say: “I’ve trained hard over the last months and get closer to being back in the team fully. Now it’s time to recharge my batteries to be prepared for the upcoming weeks. #happy #littlebreak #comebackstronger

Gundogan made his first appearance back in a City shirt in the friendly against Girona a fortnight ago when he came on for the final 20 minutes to replace Phil Foden.

He featured for 60 minutes against Leicester as he prepares to boost Pep Guardiola’s engine-room options.

The City boss said before the Girona game: “I think he’s close to coming back. We don’t want to take any risks.

“He has to be strong but of course his quality is perfect for the way we want to play.

“He’s a guy who plays in the middle and can be a holding midfielder or play in front. In those terms, we’re so happy.”
