The German International suffered an injury during the past Sunday’s match. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament just 13 minutes into the match.
City’s Manager, Pep Guardiola shared how he feels about this sad news;
“It is incredibly bad news,
“I don’t know how long he will be out. Normally this kind of injury is six or seven months – hopefully February or March.”
However, Winger Riyad Mahrez has been confirmed to fill that slot, according to Guardiola.
The Captain of the Premier League side this season will be David Silva after Vincent Kompany’s departure.
