Manchester City's flight to London REROUTED after problem with plane's anti-skid braking system


Manchester City’s flight to London REROUTED in mid-air after problem with plane’s braking system meant they had to land at Stansted rather than London City airport

Manchester City’s team flight to London rerouted into the capital after an aircraft fault on the eve of Saturday’s clash at West Ham.

Sportsmail understands an issue with the anti-skid braking system on board meant City’s plane – carrying the squad and backroom staff – had to divert in a minor inconvenience for Pep Guardiola.

The travelling party were due at London City airport but the technical fault dictated they required a longer runway to touch down.

City instead landed safely at the larger Stansted airport, 33 miles away from their planned destination, ahead of Saturday’s match against the Hammers.

London City is seen as the ideal place to land for a match at West Ham, with the airstrip close to the London Stadium on the east side of the city.

Guardiola’s team had a slightly longer journey to their hotel by bus as a consequence of the issue as they look to register a third consecutive victory for the first time this season.
