Guardiola: Phillips came back overweight from the World Cup

The head coach of the Citizens explained the absence of the midfielder of the England national team in the squad for the last matches

Main coach Manchester city Pep Guardiola explains midfielder’s miss Calvin Phillips in the team for the last match with Liverpool in the English League Cup (3:2).

“He is not injured. He arrived overweight. I don’t know [почему]. He arrived in no condition to train and play. When he’s ready, he’ll come out because we need him.”

Calvin Phillips returned to the City after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. At the same time, other players from Man City and the England team (John Stones, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish) took part in the quarter-final match with Liverpool.

Phillips joined the Townsmen in the summer from Leeds. The midfielder has made eight appearances in the Man City shirt this season.

Guardiola’s team is second in the Premier League. Manchester City will face Leeds on December 28th.
