Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is working hard to regain his full fitness and feature in the club’s pre-season programme, the Germany midfielder has said.

The 26-year-old played 16 matches for City before sustaining a season-ending knee injury in December. He returned to light training last month, ahead of his team mates.

“I still have to do a lot of work until I am back but I am ready and working hard. I am in a good way,” he told the club website (www.mancity.com).

“I am just waiting for the team to come back and maybe I am able to join the first bits of every training session – so warm-up stuff, some passing, some tactical stuff.

“Then hopefully over the next weeks I will be able to join them for the rest of the training sessions and, of course, the games.”
