Champions League final: Manchester City suffer major Ilkay Gundogan injury scare

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan limped out of their last training session on the eve of Saturday’s Champions League final against Chelsea.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan suffered an injury scare ahead of the club’s Champions League Final showdown with Chelsea. City are aiming to lift the famous trophy for the first time in their history on Saturday when they come up against Premier League rivals Chelsea in Porto.

The Germany midfielder bumped into City captain Fernandinho as he made a diving header during the session at the Estadio do Dragao on Friday.

The injury appeared to be a straightforward knock rather than a more concerning muscle problem and City did not appear overly concerned.

Guardiola did have a fully fit squad at his disposal for the game as there were no surprise omissions from the 24-man travelling squad, but Gundogan had been the only slight concern beforehand.

Gundogan had been City’s only injury worry going into the final but said earlier this week that he was feeling fine.

The former Borussia Dortmund player was substituted as a precaution early in the second half of the 3-2 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on May 18.

With City taking no risks, Gundogan sat out of the final day 5-0 win over Everton last week.
