Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo could return to action sooner than expected. Initially, it was predicted that the goal-keeper might miss the entire season after rupturing his Achilles tendon. Due to Bravo’s injury, Man City manager Pep Guardiola was forced to promote Aro Muric to number two.
However, the Chilean footballer recently shared a video of himself running on a cross trainer and it could point to an early return. Bravo’s video was a response to reports in Chile media that he had suffered an infection post surgery and due to injury, he would be ruled out for the season as well from this summer’s Copa America. The Sky Blues had, however, denied those reports.

Abrazo para todos 😍😜 pic.twitter.com/dmQv3OiSim

Man City defender Benjamin Mendy, who was out from the team since November after undergoing knee surgery, could also return from injury hopefully sooner than predicted.
Recently, Guardiola has given an update on the Frenchman’s condition and said that Mendy should be back in action in February when the Champions League resumes.
“He’s much better, not with the team, maybe two or three weeks and he’ll be with us. everyone else is fit,” Guardiola said.
Meanwhile, Vincent Kompany, Man City, captain in ‘slight doubt’ for this Sunday’s clash with Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium due to a muscle injury.
