Man City's Mendy set to miss start of season with injury

MAN CITYS MENDY SET TO MISS START OF SEASON WITH INJURY

New Manchester City signee Benjamin Mendy looks set to miss the start of the Premier League season as he recovers from a thigh injury.

The defender completed a 52-million-pounds (68 million dollars) move from Monaco on Monday and has been receiving treatment since joining City's pre-season tour of the United States.

"Mendy has a muscular injury and he needs two or three more weeks," manager Pep Guardiola said after Wednesday's 4-1 win over Real Madrid in Los Angeles. "We don't want to take any risks."

City open their season at promoted Brighton on August 12.
