The Curious Case of Benjamin Mendy | #OTBAM


Share this article


There's something brewing in the blue half of Manchester.

Pep Guardiola's men sit top of the Premier League alongside Merseyside rivals Liverpool, but just bubbling below the surface appear to be issues with some members of the squad - in this case, French World Cup winner Benjamin Mendy.

Speaking on Tuesday's #OTBAM, Sam Lee - football journalist with Goal.com - gave us an in-depth look at the situation. 

"The message really is that they're at their wits end with him and they don't really know what to do," he began. 

"There was a story I did at the start of the season about how he had been fined because he was late to training in the build-up to the Arsenal game. Apparently he's either the last to arrive or flat out late.

"They've also made him move out of the city centre. Now, we've got to a stage where he was late by two or three hours for this recovery session last Sunday after being at the boxing [Anthony Joshua / Alexander Povetkin fight] and as soon as he walked through the door Guardiola said 'get out'.

"He was banned from first team stuff for the next week. It looks as though the punishments are getting incrementally worse."

You can catch the full discussion on Tuesday's #OTBAM above.
