Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte may have just confirmed his return to the City Football Academy on Instagram, to continue his rehabilitation process after his knee injury sustained in August.
The French international has been sidelined since the end of August, following damage to his cartilage and lateral meniscus in the victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at the Etihad. However, two relatively revealing Instagram updates from Laporte himself and Benjamin Mendy on Tuesday evening, may have revealed he is well on the road to recovery.
Following the victory over Southampton in the Carabao Cup, Benjamin Mendy stated ‘He’s back’ in the dressing room, with Aymeric Laporte in shot – an exclusive from our full-back, or nothing at all?
Pep Guardiola will be hoping Laporte returns to action as soon as possible, with injuries mounting up for the Catalan boss, as the hectic Christmas fixture list rapidly approaches.
