first_imgPep Guardiola believes the Premier League should change its rules and allow emergency signings outside of the transfer window.Manchester City have been left with no experienced back-up to first choice goalkeeper Ederson, after Claudio Bravo suffered an Achilles injury. ALTERED With no option to bring in another shot-stopper, City have recalled 19-year-old Aro Muric from a season’s loan at Dutch side NAC Breda to act as second choice, with youth graduate Daniel Grimshaw their only other option between the sticks.Guardiola has also lost star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to injury since the summer window in England closed on August 9 and he feels it is unfair that clubs are not allowed to strengthen until January if they pick up early-season injuries.The City boss said: “The rules are the rules so maybe the federation can think about that when there are long, long injuries and it is still the period where the European window is open.“Then maybe you could do it. Not just for the goalkeeper but when there are big, big injuries to players.“If we were not allowed to bring back Aro, I don’t know what would have happened.“But here it is closed because it is good that the competition starts with the whole squad but maybe we could think about that, especially when the injuries are five or six months.” How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures Aro Muric has been recalled to be Man City’s number two smart causal no dice REVEALED 2 Claudio Bravo may not play again this season England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won 2 shining Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes center_img silverware Bravo is facing a lengthy period on the sidelines after suffering his Achilles injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly last week.Guardiola, who let Joe Hart and Angus Gunn go in the summer, confirmed he would have looked to sign an experienced No2 if he was allowed.He added: “We would have considered it, that is true.“We didn’t have any options.
