Man City set for Spain training trip after season opener

Manchester City will fly to Spain for a four-day training camp a day after playing Brighton and Hove Albion in their first game of the new Premier League season on August 12.

City said on their website ( that the camp would give manager Pep Guardiola a chance to work with his full squad after some players missed the club's pre-season tour of the United States.

On August 15, the club will play a friendly against La Liga side Girona, who won promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history last season.

"This trip is a great opportunity for Pep to work with his full squad in an intensive training camp," City's director of football Txiki Begiristain said.

"The game itself promises to be a fantastic spectacle, as Girona finalise their own preparations for their debut campaign in La Liga."
