Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has provided update on injured player Benjamin Mendy’s expected return dates.

The France international has completed the first stage of his rehabilitation in Barcelona and will re-join the team in Manchester at the end of August.

However, the Citizens should be careful with Mendy as he suffered constant knee injury since his move two years ago.

Asked how the defender’s recovery is progressing, Guardiola replied: “He is getting better.

“Hopefully, when we get back from the tour, he will join us.”

“We are delighted to bring young players to play with the first-team,” he continued.

“While we are arriving at the start of the season, Argentina and Brazil are playing competitions from last season so they can’t be here.”
