Here’s the bad news, Manchester City fans. Benjamin Mendy needs knee surgery again. But here’s the good news (hopefully). It’s not to repair a torn ACL this time. City confirms to Goal.com’s Sam Lee that it is a meniscus injury this time. However, there is no timetable for his recovery.
Remember, a torn ACL kept him out for most of the season last campaign. Since coming over to City, the 24-year-old fullback has struggled to stay healthy. Here’s to hoping for a speedy recovery. Mendy has just 19 appearances (with six assists) for City dating back to last season.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s side has 10 wins and two draws after 12 Premier League matches. They lead the league with 36 goals scored and are joint-top of the league with five conceded. That’s good for a staggering goal differential of plus-31.
When Mendy is on the pitch, great things happen. Let’s hope a series of knee injuries don’t start to ruin his very promising career.
