Benjamin Mendy heads into surgery, still banters off Jese Rodriguez

On hunting for a quick replacement, the Spaniard claimed: "We will see in January".

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola revealed during a press conference that left back Benjamin Mendy will be shelved with injury until April, 2018.

Benjamin Mendy, defender side of the team of France, will be operated on Friday, "a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee", announced his club, Manchester City.

The 23-year-old French global, signed for £50 million ($67 million) from Monaco in the summer, will undergo surgery in Barcelona on Friday on the injury he suffered in last weekend's victory over Crystal Palace.

"Benjamin will undergo surgery tomorrow in Barcelona, because he has a cut in the front cruciate ligament of the right knee, and everyone in the club wants to recover quickly".




"I don't know, we will wait until Thursday, but I am pretty sure it will be longer than we would like, unfortunately". "We are going to see finally what he has".

Guardiola suggested on Monday that Mendy still had a chance of featuring in the midweek Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk, but the defender was actually pictured on crutches at the game.

To make matters worse for Pep Guardiola and City, star striker Sergio Aguero has reportedly been involved in a vehicle crash after attending a concert in Holland.

"No way", Guardiola said about his chances of playing against Chelsea. The 29-year-old is said to have fractured his ribs and is looking at a one-month spell on the sidelines.
