Nacho fitness update from the boss: the latest
- Nacho Monreal missed the clash against Lazio and is now in doubt for Man City game
- He has a discomfort with his knee
“He arrived with no big injuries, but his knee has a little problem and he’s training everyday but not with us,” revealed Emery.“He’s doing work alone with the physical coach, and running, and we think maybe on Tuesday he can start training with the team."
I think I feel more comfortable with Maitland-Niles at left-back than Kolasinac...— gunnerblog (@gunnerblog) August 4, 2018
On if Nacho will be available for Man City clash:“We don’t want the injuries but it’s one of those things that you can’t help. We have players like Nacho, but he arrived late from the World Cup and also has a small injury. It’s difficult for him to arrive for the match against Manchester City. “For us we are trying to help Ainsley play in this position and, for me, I want to give confidence to all my players in their positions, then he can play in this position as best as possible. My confidence in all my players is great.”
With Kolasinac already out, how big of a blow is that?
