Manchester City: Fans react as Joao Cancelo returns from injury for Portugal

Manchester City: Fans react as Joao Cancelo returns from injury for Portugal - Manchester City News

Making a cameo for Portugal in their 0-0 draw with Spain on Wednesday, Joao Cancelo has prompted much excitement from Manchester City supporters, with the full-back now returning from a foot injury. 

A welcome addition to the squad, the 26-year-old can be deployed in a makeshift left-back role, as manager Pep Guardiola attempted at the back end of last season following his omission in favour of Kyle Walker.

Coming in for Benjamin Mendy, the Portugal international was used on that side against both Real Madrid and Lyon in the Champions League knockout rounds.

So far this season, Guardiola hasn’t been able to utilise Cancelo, with the Portuguese defender having picked up a foot injury in training.

However, after starting against Spain on Wednesday, it appears he looks ready for competitive action and could feature for City against Arsenal next week.

Reacting to this team news, many Citizens are in awe whilst also having their say over a potentially crucial development.
