Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has undergone emergency surgery on a back problem, the club confirmed in a statement on Tuesday.
Guardiola underwent the procedure in Barcelona, where he is now recovering.
The 52-year-old will miss Man City’s Premier League matches away to Sheffield United and at home to Fulham before returning after the September international break.
“Pep Guardiola has today undergone a routine operation on a back problem.
“Everyone at Manchester City wishes Pep a speedy recovery, and look forward to seeing him back in Manchester soon,” Man City’s statement read.
This is coming after Guardiola led Man City to beat Newcastle United 1-0 last weekend.
