Manchester City: Fans try to guess Aymeric Laporte’s injury recovery time

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has undergone surgery on the knee injury he picked up in last weekend’s 4-0 win against Brighton at the Etihad Stadium.

The Premier League champions confirmed on their official Twitter channel @ManCity that the 25-year-old centre-back went for knee surgery with Dr Ramon Cugat in Barcelona and that the operation was successful, although no time parameters were placed on the anticipated length of the player’s recovery time.

Manchester Evening News reported that Laporte damaged his cartilage and lateral meniscus following a challenge on Brighton’s Adam Webster which earned him a yellow card but also resulted in him being removed on a stretcher following lengthy treatment on the pitch.

He is not the first Manchester City player to suffer a serious injury this season, with Leroy Sane rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in last month’s Community Shield against Liverpool, as reported by The Independent.

In the absence of any specified indication, these Manchester City fans on Twitter attempted to guess the length of time it could take Laporte to recover from his injury:
