Manchester City left back Benjamin Mendy went to Barcelona for international break, but it’s hardly a vacation.
Mendy, 24, withdrew from France duty and instead flew to Spain where he’s undergone knee surgery and will miss more time for City.
No timetable was given for his recovery.

He missed around three weeks earlier this season with a foot injury, and more than six months with an ACL tear last year.
Fabian Delph has played left back for City during Mendy’s extended absences, and the club has used Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Mendy played 40 minutes for France in its World Cup triumph and has nine caps.
