Durban: Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini could rejoin the squad in Hong Kong on Tuesday according to assistant manager Brian Kidd.

Pellegrini left City's pre-season training camp in South Africa and returned to his homeland of Chile due to a personal issue, leaving Kidd in charge for Thursday's 2-1 defeat in a pre-season friendly against AmaZula.

The reason for the former Malaga coach's absence remains unclear but Kidd is hopeful that Pellegrini will be back with his players when they continue their tour in Asia.
