‘That’s Probably His Season Over’ ‘Come Back Stronger’ Fans On Social Media Speculate As Injured City Star Travels To See Specialist

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has travelled to Barcelona to see a specialist about his knee injury, according to reports in the English media.

Manager Pep Guardiola has asked for the centre-back to see surgeon Dr Ramon Cugat who will assess the extent of the 25-year-old’s injury.

Laporte injured himself whilst trying to tackle Brighton’s Adam Webster in the 4-0 win at the weekend. Supporters on Twitter are fearing the worst about the length of time the Frenchman could be out for:

It is believed that City will find out today how long Laporte will be out for, and if he needs surgery. When that information will be revealed publicly, it remains to be seen.

TV pundit Gary Neville believes the defender’s injury could swing the title race in favour of Liverpool, but City boss Guardiola believes he could use Kyle Walker or Fernandinho in place of Laporte at centre-half if John Stones or Nicolas Otamendi are not available.
