Man City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan: Injuries had me asking 'why me?'


Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is delighted to be focusing on a preseason return.

The German midfield star, 26, was just 15 games into his Manchester City career as Pep Guardiola‘s first signing when a knee injury hit last December.

He had only been fit for three months after suffering a dislocated knee at old club Borussia Dortmund.

He told BILD: “There were times after my cruciate injury that I asked, ‘Why me?’

“In the weeks after the injury you are saying, ‘What have I done so wrong to have something like this happen to me again?’ But thinking like that, I realised, gets you nowhere in the end.

“I just had to accept fate wants to put a few more setbacks against me than others.

“In the end, I have not broken my neck.”
