Man City’s Mendy has knee surgery
Manchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy has undergone surgery on the cartilage in his left knee.
So far no timescale has been given on the 2018 World Cup winner’s return to action.
Mendy missed seven months of Manchester City’s Premier League-winning campaign last season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The 24-year-old had made a successful return to action this season, notably by setting up both goals in the Citizens’ 2-0 win at Arsenal in their first game.
Last season Pep Guardiola used Danilo, Fabian Delph and Oleksandr Zinchenko in the left-back role during Mendy’s absence. It also led to more playing time for Leroy Sané.
Benjamin Mendy had been due to join up with the France squad for their final UEFA Nations League group stage match this week but has subsequently withdrawn and headed to Barcelona for surgery instead.
The full-back has made 12 appearances so far this season and played the full 90 minutes in Sunday’s 3-1 victory over rivals Manchester United.
