Phillips ‘Overweight’ After World Cup: Guardiola

Phillips not fully fit after world cup

Guardiola’s initial explanation was to say Phillips, who joined City from Leeds in July, was not fit.

However, the City boss later stated: “He is not injured. He arrived overweight.”

When asked why, Guardiola replied: “I don’t know.

“He didn’t arrive in the condition for the training sessions and to play.”

Phillips played twice for England in Qatar after recovering from shoulder surgery, coming on as a substitute against Wales and Senegal.

He joined City in a £45m deal last summer but has made just one Premier League appearance this season, coming on as a last-minute substitute at West Ham in August.
