Benjamin Mendy is said to be doing "much better" but Pep Guardiola wouldn’t be drawn on a return date for the defender who has spent the last six months sidelined.
Speaking during Friday’s pre-match press conference, the City boss revealed Mendy has made significant progress in his recovery from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament: "He is much, much better – especially over the past week or 10 days as he has been training with us." But, when asked if the Frenchman would be available for the upcoming Manchester derby on April 07, Guardiola responded by saying: "I don’t know, I can’t anticipate it." Of course, given that Mendy hasn’t played competitively since September, it’s highly unlikely that he will be involved given his lack of conditioning. However, the news is positive, and Mendy has every chance of making appearance before the end of the campaign as he looks towards a place in Didier Deschamps 2018 World Cup finals squad.
