The Frenchman wasn’t named in the 18-man Manchester City squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Wolves.
Manchester City’s injury-prone French defender Benjamin Mendy has been sidelined for two more weeks following a hamstring problem.
Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has suffered a fresh injury blow after he was ruled out of Sunday’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers with a hamstring problem.
The France international made his first start of the season in the 8-0 mauling of Watford on 21 September, a game in which he came off at half-time. He also played the full 90 minutes as City beat Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.
The 25-year-old has endured a frustrating series of injuries since joining City from Monaco in 2017 and missed the start of the current campaign with a knee issue.
In a statement posted on their website, the Citizens said “the French full-back is expected to return to action following the international break”. Mendy made just eight appearances for City in 2017-18 due to knee surgery and a similar problem limited him to 15 last term. The left-back has played four times for the Premier League champions this season.
Former Juventus defender Joao Cancelo was selected in Mendy’s position for Wolverhampton Wanderers’ visit to the Etihad Stadium.
