EPL: Guardiola Sidelines Kalvin Phillips For Being Overweight

Must read

Pep Guardiola has got an unusual situation to deal with after it was revealed that English midfielder Kalvin Philips has returned from the World Cup overweight.

That is why he is not expected to feature in City’s next game and he has been unable to train with the rest of the squad.

“He’s not injured, he came in overweight. He was not fit enough to train and play,” Guardiola explained.

Guardiola could not have been clearer in explaining the reasons why Phillips is training separately.

The England and Portugal players who played in the World Cup returned to work with Manchester City on Wednesday, but Phillips was told not to train with his teammates.

He was also left out of the squad for Pep’s side’s Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool. Curiously, the other England internationals were on the bench.
