Man City's Benjamin Mendy ruptures anterior cruciate ligament

1:59 | Planet Futbol         A look back at Manchester City's dramatic 2012 Premier League title win

Amsterdam police spokesman Frans Zuiderhoek said that officers attended to an accident in the city at around 11pm after "a taxi-cab hit a lamp-post".

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.

Mendy seemed in strong spirit despite the injury and tweeted he was joining Loan FC.

Given City's trip to Chelsea, questions may be asked why Aguero was in the Netherlands 48 hours before such a serious match.

"It was his day off". "I think days off are for players to be happy".

"I'm going to have surgery with Jesé Rodriguez!"

Friedman's remarks are "very bad news for the future of any American attempt to make peace in the Middle East", Shaath added. US President Donald Trump is seeking to restart frozen peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Mendy then played in the games against Liverpool, Feyenoord, Watford and Palace, with City keeping clean sheets in each one.

But now, after hearing that he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament, he's maintained his playful online persona and made fun of his strife.

The new signing, who joined from Monaco for a fee of £49.2m in August, suffered the injury during the Citizens' 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace last weekend and eventually travelled to Spain to see a specialist.

The prospect of losing Mendy for the rest of the season severely weakens Guardiola's strategy, as the France global was a key part of his summer squad rebuilding.

"We thought next summer about looking for another replacement at left-back, we will see what we do, we have alternatives in our squad, Fabian Delph, Danilo, Fernandinho, and Zinchenko, we will see as we go along".
