    Actually 3 types of reconstruction: patella, hamstring or from a donor. Patella has generally been the favoured method for young athletes, but in certain (fairly rare) circumstances, can lead to longer term complications. For that reason, hamstring is considered to be the strongest by some surgeons, although the recovery is more difficult

    You're right I don't care about anyone else's team but I actually thought of Shaw after I'd posted. We have had so many bad ones over the years though

    Typical City the one position we dont really have a natural backup for in the team and he gets one of the worst injuries possible after he played about 5 games for the club. He was our most critical player, this has hurt us bad.

    Did he rupture the same ACL twice or is it the other one?

    It was.

    Maybe it's worse as a huge part of Mendy's game is pace - which might go away if the ACL surgery doesn't completely restore the knee.

    Really unlucky for Mendy - at the time of injury, I really thought it was no big deal and that he'd be waived back into the game after a brief sideline stint; it really didn't look serious at all.
