Pep Guardiola named Premier League Manager of the Month for September

Pep Guardiola named Premier League Manager of the Month for September

The Argentina global suffered the injury during an off-day in Amsterdam towards the end of September and was initially ruled out for up to a month.

Guardiola's side won all four fixtures, against Liverpool, Watford, Crystal Palace and Chelsea, scoring 17 goals without conceding.

Guardiola, speaking at his pre-match press conference, said: "He did his first training session after what happened and he did it quite well". "He did it quite well".

"Of course, he's not 100 per cent, but he's recovered quite well".

"Aguero, who was pictured back in light training earlier this week, said: "(On Thursday) I'll rejoin the group and see how I feel, whether I'm comfortable or not".

The situation remains less clear concerning the fitness of captain Vincent Kompany.

The centre-back has not played since injuring his calf during Belgium's World Cup qualifying win over Gibraltar on August 31.

"He is still injured", Guardiola said.

"Hopefully he is in the last part". "I've told him, he can come in the locker room every day, he should be with us and he is a special guy". "He will notify us".

"The transfer window is closed now".

Guardiola spoke at last night's 'Manchester City's Evening with Manager', presented by Betsafe.

"The problem we have in the Benjamin Mendy injury". It's a big problem for us.

"We will see about January, we are in October". We're going to suffer in this situation, even though we have Fabian (Delph), Danilo, (Oleksandr) Zinchenko. "Mendy was and is so important for us and unfortunately six months a long time".
