Spain coach Luis Enrique eases Man City concerns over Laporte injury

Spain coach Luis Enrique has played down injury concerns for Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte.

There were concerns in Spain and back in Manchester on Sunday when the centre-back was replaced at half time with a suspected adductor injury. Spain's Jose Gaya also went off injured in the 4-0 win over Georgia.

However, Enrique confirmed after the game that 'muscle fatigue' was the reason for Laporte's switch, and that he wasn't expecting much further examination of the City man.

"Most of the changes were due to some discomfort for the players. I hope there are no serious injuries. That's the bad news," he said.

"Laporte has nothing, it's just a small overload. I don't think they'll even test him.

"Gaya does not look good."
