Man City boss Pep Guardiola named Premier League Manager of Month


Manchester City star striker Sergio Aguero is pushing for inclusion in the Citizens squad to face Stoke City on Saturday in what would be a surprise early return from the rib injury the striker suffered in a auto crash less than two weeks ago.

"He did his first training session after what happened, and he did it quite well", Guardiola said.

"Hopefully as soon as possible he will be back".

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner's present contract situation at the Nou Camp is uncertain, b ut Aguero said: "City would have no money problems in regards to signing Messi, but he is a symbol of Barcelona and it would be very hard for him to leave". We will see today. Maybe [Aguero will play against Stoke], we are going to see the last training session.

"Of course, he's not 100 per cent, but he's recovered quite well". It was not as risky as it could be. "He explained to us what happened and the most important thing is it was not as bad as it could have been".

Medical officials within the Argentina set-up suggested that Aguero would be out until November, but Aguero has come through three days of training unscathed, including his first full session with his team-mates on Thursday.

China exports and imports both increase
That left the country with a trade surplus of $28.47bn, less than the near $40bn expected and down from around $42bn in August. Imports rose 18.7 percent to $169.8 billion, an improvement from the previous month's 13.3 percent.

Aguero (rib) could be available for Saturday's match against Stoke City, according to manager Pep Guardiola.

While Aguero is on the verge of a comeback, captain Vincent Kompany is continuing to struggle with injury problems.

Midfielder Joe Allen will miss the match, after suffering concussion while on worldwide duty with Wales, while defenders Ryan Shawcross and Bruno Martins Indi are unlikely to feature due to respective back and groin complaints.

No date has ever been put on a potential return even though the problem is not regarded as overly serious.

"He is still injured", Guardiola said. He's much better but it is still individual training for him. "He'll notice how he feels and when he'll be able".

Guardiola maintained City's most pressing injury concern is Benjamin Mendy's long-term absence following cruciate knee ligament surgery.

"The transfer window is closed now". It's a big problem for us.

"We'll suffer even though we have the exceptional Fabian, Danilo, and even Zinchenko".

Guardiola spoke at last night's 'Manchester City's Evening with Manager', presented by Betsafe. "Unfortunately it was long open, but now it is closed".

"We will see about January, we are in October".

Looking ahead to the visit of Stoke, Guardiola said: "They are defensively well organised with quality up front in (Xherdan) Shaqiri, Jese, and (Eric Maxim) Choupo-Moting".
