“He [Stones] is out four, five or six weeks. He was injured in training this morning. It is a muscular problem.” Guardiola said.
“For me as a manager it is an incredible challenge. But I believe in something people don’t know about – spirit and commitment. We will make steps forward to solve this problem.” he added.
