Mendy hilariously responds to Guardiola criticism

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has responded to criticism by manager Pep Guardiola about his social media use, in typical Mendy fashion.

Mendy feels like a brand new signing for City this season, having spent the majority of their title winning campaign out injured.

And the Frenchman played a key role in City’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday, showing exactly why Guardiola paid almost £50m to sign him last summer.

When asked about Mendy’s tendency to appear where he was least expected, Guardiola grinned and said: “That is not good! Mendy is Mendy, and at times it is what it is.

“Sometimes we want to kill him, and sometimes you say ‘Wow, what a player we have!

“He gives us this extra energy, with Kyle Walker, that helps us.

“Mendy has a lot of thing to improve. Hopefully we can convince him to be calm, to forget a little bit the social media and focus on what he has to do.”

Obviously Guardiola’s comments were said in a joking fashion, and Mendy took to Twitter in order to respond in a typically hilarious way.
