Man City's flight to China for preseason delayed

Manchester City's preseason plans were disrupted when their flight to China was delayed by a day due to "unforeseen administrative issue," the Premier League champions said.

City were due to fly from Manchester Airport on Saturday for next week's Premier League Asia Trophy match against West Ham, but their chartered flight remained grounded.

The club said in a statement posted on social media: "Due to an unforeseen administrative issue beyond the Club's control, which is being resolved, regrettably, we will embark on our pre-season tour a little later than intended.

"We will now travel tomorrow and look forward to taking part in the Premier League Asia Trophy as planned.
