Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes new signing Manuel Akanji is ready to make his debut for the club.
Akanji joined the Premier League champions from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund last week.
The center-back will be in City’s traveling party for Tuesday’s Champions League group stage opener against Sevilla.
Asked whether the defender would travel to Andalusia, the boss responded: “I think so. He feels good.
“He couldn’t be here [against Aston Villa] because he had a baby born, so congratulations to him, his wife, and family.
“[But] he is ready, he came back really well from Dortmund.
“He’s trained one day. Friday afternoon he flew to his wife.
“I think today [Saturday] or tomorrow [Sunday] he is coming back to Manchester.”
