Benjamin Mendy will make his football comeback this weekend, two years after his previous appearance.
The former Manchester City plaeyr Benjamin Mendy, joined Lorient after being cleared of rape charges.
Five days after his trial finished in July, the left-back agreed to a two-year contract.
According to L’Equipe, Mendy, 29, is now fit to play against his former club Monaco on Sunday.
It will be his first appearance since City’s 1-0 loss to Tottenham in August 2021.
Mendy is claimed to have been working hard for the previous two months in order to catch up.
Lorient has only won one of their first four games this season, a 3-0 loss at Le Havre.
And Mendy is expected to be called up to face Monaco, who leads Ligue 1 with three wins this season.
He won the Premier League title with the south coast club in 2017 before joining City for £52 million.
Mendy played 75 games under Pep Guardiola, earning three Premier League titles until his contract terminated in June.
Benjamin Mendy reportedly turned down a chance to return to England before signing with Lorient.
Burnley, led by ex-Man City teammate Vincent Kompany, is said to be interested in a deal.
Mendy was also approached by Olympiacos, a Greek powerhouse.
However, he chose to return to France in order to “have fun on the pitch” in a “quieter environment.”
