League Cup, Champions League and the Premier League are all of the top competitions that Manchester City have to play within the next few weeks and months. It will certainly be a schedule with non-stop action for Manuel Pellegrini and his players but this is not good news for the English club as they are a number of key players which are out injured.
Fernando, YayaToure, Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany and Samir Nasri are all of the players in the squad of Manuel Pellegrini which have been suffering with injuries in these past few weeks.
These injuries have forced Pellegrini on having to change around his squad for certain matches and the Chilean manager will have to continue doing those makeshift teams for a few more weeks unless his main players start to recover.
Even with all of the injuries that the players of Manchester City have been experiencing, the club has still managed to reach the semi-finals of the League Cup, secured a place in the last 16 of the Champions League and are still in the top spots of the Premier League.
Manchester City recently received a cash injection after it was announced that 13% stake of City’s parent company was sold to a consortium of Chinese investors for a price of £265m. Negotiations for this had already been taking place for the past 5 months but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago earlier in December when the deal was officially completed.
One of the main reasons on why the City Football Group (CFG) decided to go on with this deal was to allow them to extend their reach and visibility of the club to outside of England and enter the Asian territory and it’s football industry.
