Manuel Pellegrini: 'Samir Nasri fit for Manchester derby'

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says that Samir Nasri will be back in full training in a week's time, putting him in contention for the Manchester derby.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is hopeful that Samir Nasri will be fighting fit by the time local rivals Manchester United travel to Eastlands on November 2.

The Frenchman has been out of action with a groin strain since the 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich last month.

However, Pellegrini claims that the 27-year-old should return to full training by the end of next week, putting him in contention for the Manchester derby on the following Sunday.

"Samir Nasri is recovering from his surgery," the Chilean told reporters.

"I don't know exactly but I suppose that end of the next week he will start working with the whole team again."

The Premier League champions host Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow afternoon at 12.45pm.
