Sagna out for 3 weeks

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

BACARY SAGNA has been ruled out for three weeks with a ham­string tear.

The Manch­ester City star suf­fered the in­jury while on in­ter­na­tional duty with France over the week­end.

Sagna had to limp off in the first half of France’s 4-1 World Cup qual­i­fy­ing win over Bul­garia on Fri­day.

The French­man was thought to be side­lined for at least a month when the in­jury first hap­pened, but scans sug­gest the dam­age isn’t as bad as first feared.

But it is bad news for Pep Guardi­ola who will be with­out the 33-year-old for Ever­ton’s visit on Satur­day, both Cham­pi­ons League matches against Barcelona, and the EFL Cup clash with Manch­ester United on Oc­to­ber 26.

Sagna has played five matches for City this sea­son and started in their 2-1 win over United last month.

His ab­sence over the com­ing weeks will likely lead to Pablo Za­baleta com­ing into the fold.
