Pep Guardiola has confirmed that both Sergio Aguero and Aymeric Laporte will both miss Monday's season opener away at Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Aguero still training alone and Laporte still yet to recover from coronavirus.
"Diogo is wonderful and everybody knows the relationship we built during four seasons", said Nuno.
"Riyad came back three or four days ago and is training".
"He (Aguero) still did not make one training session with us", Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City's first league match of the season.
The former Barcelona boss said: "I think I don't have to explain anything".
After missing out on the signing of Lionel Messi from Barcelona, Aguero's absence leaves Guardiola with only one fit striker in Gabriel Jesus. Having had so many players since Maradona, is verification of the relationship with the environment and the city - I only find enthusiastic people. "I can not talk about the intentions for other people".
Guardiola made the Spain worldwide a key part of his Bayern Munich side after making his signing a priority at the German club, but his next destination will be Liverpool. "We have a group of players ready to compete against any opponent and we are able to do great things in the Champions League".
"Like I've said before, it's a small squad and I think he can give us good options on balancing the squad, but the squad is not definitely closed, and we still need to work on that".
"I'm happy to see him in England".
"They allow me to do my job the best I can and with all my staff and the players, and this is going to continue".
Pep Guardiola will be hoping that assessment rings true as he prepares to unleash an exciting 20-year-old winger on Premier League opposition.
However, the midfielder's campaign got off to a bad start when he was sent home for breaching coronavirus protocols while on global duty with England in Iceland a fortnight ago. "He knows he made a mistake and that is all".
