City duo closing in on full fitness
The pair have played just once for their new club so far this term
before being struck down by ankle and knee problems respectively.
It had been suggested they had both suffered setbacks in training
that could consign them to further spells on the sidelines.
However, ahead of Sunday’s trip to Blackpool, Mancini has revealed
the damage is not too extensive. “Aleksandar and Mario should be
available in 10 days,” he said. “Aleksander has started to work
with the team but has been out for a long time, so we have to be
careful. “Mario is different. He should be able to work with the
squad in five days.”
