Guardiola reveals Ake's return to training date

Pep Guardiola has confirmed Nathan Ake will return to full training after Manchester City’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A muscular injury has kept the defender out for 17 games, with his last appearance coming in the Boxing Day victory over Newcastle United.


Ake recently began an individual training programme as he stepped up his recovery from the two-month injury layoff, which Guardiola admitted was longer than expected and the City boss is looking forward to having the summer signing available again.

“He struggled to make a good recovery,” Guardiola explained ahead of the Wolves game.

“The process to recover was lower than expected. Some players are like this. He did everything. The physios worked hard.

“We are happy he is coming back the day after the game. The next day we train together he will be with us.”
