Mendy has a special quality - Pep Guardiola

Mendy has a special quality - Pep Guardiola

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is happy with the return of left-back Benjamin Mendy and wants him to prove he can play in the Premier League.

Manchester City signed Benjamin Mendy from Monaco in 2017 but the France International has not been able to display the kind of form he was at Monaco due to injury problems since he joined the Premier League side.

But thanks to the pandemic Mendy who has been out for some time is now back in the squad and was brilliant in the game against Arsenal.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of his side game against Burnley later today Pep Guardiola has now revealed Mendy will be key for the side in the next few weeks and that his energy will be a positive addition to the side as the top 4 battle gets more interesting.

'It's our wish and his wish. He has a special quality with his energy. He came back so fit but it’s one game. Hopefully, he can play regularly.

'He's a guy who missed a lot. Fabian Delph and Oleksandr (Zinchenko) and Danilo helped us a lot (when Mendy was out). I think it's so important to have him, but we have to wait, it’s just one game.

'The quality for Benjamin is to go outside, but Mendy is also learning to go inside too. It’s about being fit.

'He loves playing football. He plays without pressure – he's a guy who handles pressure really well. But we could not count on him for two years, it's a long time.'
