INJURY UPDATES: After the Netherlands scare, Nathan Ake provides a significant Manchester City fitness update.

Following a scare while serving for his country, Nathan Ake has received a significant fitness update, which has helped Manchester City.

At halftime of the Netherlands’ 3-0 victory over Greece in European Championship qualifying earlier this week, the 28-year-old was taken off, according to some Dutch media.

He was said to have a hamstring injury.

Aké had’some slight complaints’ during the first half of the victory over Greece, according to Telegraaf’s post-match report, but was taken off as a precaution at halftime.

We didn’t want to take a chance with him, according to national team head coach Ronald Koeman.”.

While some at Manchester City had been concerned about the progress being made with their adaptable center-back, a recent update has provided some much-needed clarity and will undoubtedly be a huge help to the team.

The Manchester Evening News quotes Dutch media outlet Telegraaf as saying that Nathan Ake still appeared to be in pain during Friday’s Netherlands training session, but most importantly, he had resumed work on the grass following the match with Greece.

The Manchester City defender is also anticipated to be available to manager Ronald Koeman for their upcoming matchup against Republic of Ireland on Sunday evening in European Championship qualifying, it is further stated.

Following the end of the international break, Pep Guardiola is anticipated to resume his duties as the head coach of Manchester City after being compelled to miss the team’s last two Premier League games due to injury.

Before the team’s 1-2 victory over Sheffield United, Guardiola underwent emergency back surgery.

As a result, assistant coach Juanma Lillo assumed responsibility for both the training field and the sidelines.

Following the current international break, City will play at West Ham United on the road in the Premier League.

A few days later, they will also begin their UEFA Champions League defense at home against Red Star Belgrade in the group stage.
