Manchester City’s esteemed manager, Pep Guardiola, has recently undergone a significant back surgery, forcing him to take a temporary leave from his duties. This news, announced by the club on Tuesday, has left fans and the football world concerned about his well-being and the immediate future of the team.

Consequently, the seasoned manager traveled to Barcelona for emergency surgery, performed by the skilled hands of Dr. Mireia Illueca. Thankfully, the surgery was deemed a success, offering hope for a swift recovery.

During Guardiola’s absence, the reins of the first team will be expertly held by assistant manager Juanma Lillo.

The news of Guardiola’s medical intervention has triggered an outpouring of support from the Manchester City community and beyond. The club expressed their heartfelt wishes for Guardiola’s speedy recovery and eagerly anticipates his swift return to Manchester.

Guardiola, at the age of 52, had recently been guiding his squad from the dugout, witnessing opening Premier League victories against Burnley and Newcastle. Additionally, he led his team to Greece for the UEFA Super Cup. However, this unforeseen setback will regrettably keep him away from the upcoming fixtures.
