Man City confirms Mendy has ruptured ACL, will undergo surgery
Well, the news isn’t good for one of Manchester City’s big summer signings.
The club revealed on Thursday that Benjamin Mendy has suffered a ruptured ACL in his right knee and the defender will have surgery to repair it.
Mendy went to see a specialist in Barcelona, where the surgery will take place on Friday.
The injury occurred during City’s 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace last weekend, with Mendy being forced out of the match prior to the 30th minute.
There is no timetable for the 23-year-old’s return, but it’s expected that he will miss the entire Premier League season given the severity of his injury.
