Mendy also shared the news on his Twitter account, and vowed to come back soon and stronger than ever:
Bad news guys ll be joining Injury FC on loan for a couple monthes with ruptured ACL... but will be back soon & stronger hopefully— Benjamin Mendy (@benmendy23) September 28, 2017
This is obviously a major blow to City’s title chances. Mendy was a crucial part of the system Pep Guardiola was hoping to implement this season, and for the next 6-8 months it’ll be next to impossible to find a replacement for the Frenchman. City will no doubt invest in a left-back in the January transfer window, but until then things will be very tough for the Blues.
Please get better as soon as possible, Benji. We love you and need you.
