ON THE MENDY: Benjamin's surgery was a success

Benjamin Mendy’s knee surgery was a success!

The French defender ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the recent 5-0 win over Crystal Palace.

After initial tests in Manchester, Benjamin travelled to Barcelona to see Dr Ramon Cugat, a specialist doctor, to establish the extent of the injury.

And on Friday, he underwent surgery, which was completed without any problems.

Everyone at the Club wishes Benjamin a speedy recovery and we hope to see him back in the first team as soon as possible.

ManCity.com will bring you updates on his recovery as we get them.
