Pep Guardiola confirmed the news about Eric when he spoke to the press on the conference after 4-0 win over Getafe on Tuesday during which fans chanted the name of french defender in the 22nd minute of the match: "Before coming here I've been told that the operation has been finished, and we'll have to wait 48 hours to see his evolution.
