City rule out sign­ings

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

Pep Guardi­ola has ruled out the prospect of mov­ing for a cen­tre­half in Jan­uary, de­spite Aymeric La­porte be­ing out for up to six months af­ter knee surgery. The City man­ager is con­fi­dent John Stones and Ni­co­las Ota­mendi can re­dis­cover the form they showed dur­ing his first ti­tle win­ning sea­son at the club in 2017-18. “He [Stones] is go­ing to play in­cred­i­ble in this pe­riod while La­porte is not with us. I don’t have any doubts about his qual­ity, his per­son­al­ity. The same case like Nico,” Guardi­ola said. “Be­fore Aymeric came they were a part­ner­ship and they played many games. Aymeric in that po­si­tion is im­por­tant, for his left foot and his per­son­al­ity. We’re go­ing to live with­out him for a long time, but we have enough re­sources to move for­ward.”
