“We will train this afternoon and we will know exactly,” said Pep when asked who was available for FC Copenhagen.
“Rodri feels better, but Kyle, I think is out. But we have training later.”
There was also more encouraging news on Kalvin Phillips who recently underwent surgery on his shoulder.
Pep, who suggested Phillips may be fit for the World Cup later this year, was asked if the former Leeds United star might be available for City before the tournament.
“I hope so. I hope for him and the national team,” he said.
“But I am not a physio – the doctor told me he is doing good.”
When pressed whether that could mean a potential return in a fortnight or so, the boss quipped: “In the summer I will take a licence to become a doctor!”
