Benjamin Mendy targets early return

Benjamin Mendy who arrived as one of the premier talents out of Ligue 1 becoming the most expensive £52million defender of that time damaged knee ligaments in the game against Crystal Palace in September.

The 23-year-old is steadily upping his recovery and targeting his early return.

“When I started my recovery, I had in mind the semi-finals of the Champions League,” says Benjamin Mendy with a glint in his eye.

“That was my goal, but I am coming back a bit quicker than expected originally so maybe it will be possible for me to return sooner than that. I believe in this.

“I think it’s possible for me to come back within four weeks. It’s not a good thing to come back too soon and you have to take your time.

“We will see how things go, but I am working hard and optimistic.”

The French left-back who made a reputation on social media throughout his first season believes he could set for a return at the start of April if things go well.

“The Manchester derby is a realistic aim. That’s half clear in my mind. I really want to play that game,” he said.

“Of course, there is the World Cup on the horizon, too. For me, there is no doubt regarding the World Cup.

“After I return, it’s on me to impress; I have to make sure I come back well and to keep the rhythm. Before it was one of my targets, but now I know it will be fine.”
