Below is today’s Spanish press review on Saturday, February 8, 2020:
“Sterling joins Pep’s problems“
Raheem Sterling’s hamstring injury in the loss to Tottenham last weekend will deprive Manchester City for several weeks of one of their key men. All this is less than 20 days after the first leg of the Round of 16 of the Champions League on Spanish soil against Real Madrid.

The Mirror also analyses the plight of Manchester City, with a very eloquent title. And reporting, on the front page, the bang and answer between the reporters and Pep Guardiola: “Will he stay out for weeks or months?”, the question, “I don’t know”, the answer of the coach.
