Man City boost as Otamendi released from Argentina squad

Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi is returning from the Argentina squad early.

Otamendi was the Blues' only fit centre back heading into the internationals and he played for Argentina against Chile on Friday night.

The second friendly of the break, against Mexico, wasn't due to take place until the early hours of Wednesday morning UK time.

But Ole says Otamendi has now returned to Manchester, with the decision was planned ahead of the fixtures.
