Pep Guardiola to miss Manchester City’s next two games

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has today undergone a routine operation on a back problem, which means that the English Premier League champions boss will be out of commission for some time.

Manchester City has revealed that Guardiola boss has been suffering from severe back pain for some time lately and flew out to Barcelona for emergency surgery performed by Dr Mireia Illueca.

City has announced that in his absence, assistant manager Juanma Lillo will oversee coaching of the first team on the training field and will assume duties on the touchline until Pep’s return.
