"It's a matter of the amount of pain and the loads that we have for the players and there was quite some intensive games.
"I think it's possible [he could play against City] but it's a race against pain and a race against time so let's see.
"Hopefully he will be back in team training on Thursday and if this goes well he can be ready for Saturday but I don't know right now."
