Benjamin Mendy Ruled Out For Months

Manchester City confirmed that Benjamin Mendy has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and could be out for the rest of the season.

Mendy will have surgery in Barcelona on Friday and faces a battle to play again this season, delivering a serious blow to City’s plans.

The France left-back suffered the injury against Crystal Palace last weekend in what was only his fifth appearance for City since moving from Monaco in the summer.
