Manchester City’s Laporte out until September following knee surgery | Football News

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has undergone surgery for a knee injury and could be out until September, manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday ahead of the Premier League champions’ Community Shield clash with FA Cup winners Liverpool.
The 28-year-old Spanish centre-back, born in France, missed City’s pre-season tour of the United States this month in which they beat Club America and Bayern Munich.
“Laporte is injured,” Guardiola told reporters ahead of Saturday’s clash at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium.
“He had surgery. Last season he played the last games with an injury, he made an incredible effort but he couldn’t keep doing that.
“He had surgery and so far he is doing very well. You have to be careful because it was his knee. If everything goes well, he will start being with us in September.”
