Most footballers who concede a serious injury such as an ACL tear would probably be keen on recovery and rehabilitation that follows it.
But Man City’s Benjamin Mendy has been busy ‘trolling’ his own teammates on twitter, and even hopping onto the pitch, like he did to celebrate Raheem Sterling’s clutch time winner against Southampton.
The defender is definitely a dynamic character at the Etihad, but perhaps he’s now doing something much more helpful for his club, according to him. And the best part is, the City fans are going to be delighted to hear what Mendy is up to these days.
It was revealed when the Frenchman posted a picture of him and Kevin De Bruyne, with a caption referring to himself as ‘Agent Mendy’.
And when a fan pleaded the talented full-back to convince their reported target, Samuel Umtiti, to join the Skyblues, he delivered a brilliant response as usual.
Along with United, Umtiti has also been linked with a move to the Etihad recently, and despite the uncertainty of whether the 23-year-old meant it as a joke, City supporters have spotted a ray of hope.
On the other hand, the Barcelona starlet is easily one of La Liga’s best defenders at the moment. And with Pep Guardiola’s side looking shaky in defence, the French centre-back could prove to be the final screw to the Spaniard’s perfect system.
