Manchester City Benjamin Mendy Returns To Training

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has stepped up his recovery from a long-term knee injury by returning to training with the Premier League leaders.

The football club Manchester City released photographs of the France left-back participating in a session with his teammates on Monday.

Benjamin Mendy, 23, who has been out of action since suffering knee ligament damage and undergoing surgery in September, last week suggested he was close to a return.

“When I started my recovery, I had in mind the semifinals of the Champions League,” Benjamin Mendy told the Manchester City club website,

“That was my goal, but I am coming back a bit quicker than expected originally so maybe it will be possible for me to return sooner than that. I believe in this.

“I think it’s possible for me to come back within four weeks. It’s not a good thing to come back too soon and you have to take your time.”

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have an enormous lead in the Premier League and are all but guaranteed a Champions League quarterfinal slot after a 4-0 win against Basle in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
