    Benjamin Mendy: Pep Guardiola speaks to left-back over lateness

    1 hour ago | Man City

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he has spoken to Benjamin Mendy after the injured left-back turned up late to a treatment session on Sunday.

    Mendy, 24, attended world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua's victory over Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

    The France international is out with a foot injury and will miss Saturday's Premier League match against Brighton.

    "He should be here. He knows it. I spoke with him," said Guardiola.

    Mendy was banned from driving for a year after accumulating 24 points on his licence earlier this month.

    The World Cup winner has made only 13 appearances for City since signing from Monaco for £52m last year, having spent seven months of last season out after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

    Guardiola, who has said he wants Mendy to use social media less, said other City players had also been late recently.

    "That happens sometimes, in the last period a lot have arrived late because of the traffic," said the Spaniard.

    "Manchester is under construction, the players arrive late. They have to drop their kids at school."

    Guardiola added that Mendy was having treatment every day but did not say when the defender will return.

    "I expect him back when he's fit. Now he's injured, it's not a problem with his physical condition," he said.

    "He's injured and when he's OK he's coming back and when he decides to play he's going to play."

    However, Kevin de Bruyne is expected to return to training in the next few days.

    The Belgium midfielder was ruled out for three months in August after sustaining a knee injury in training.

    "He's making the last steps," said Guardiola.

    "He starts training I think in the next days, part of the training session with us. Everything is going well."

    For bail you mean ?

    Guess they see these charges as so dangerous that it doesn’t warrant being let go on bail .

    I see it as either 2 things.

    Accusations are false to get money out of a wealthy person.

    Or

    Pay to keep quiet.

    This one's a tough one because Bail has been refused. Maybe the story given is very convincing.

    One media organisation might be in a bit of bother .

    I know. Life in Prison really is grim.

    I had a Nightmare the other night that I was sent down when I was innocent.

    I have to stop taking sleeping pills.

    You accuse room of lying about being raped for money and then when called out come up with some bollocks about sleeping pills. Stay classy, you wrong ‘un.

    So Mendy is currently remanded in custody for numerous counts of rape/sexual assault because he didn't pay for these "convincing stories" to go away but despite that two other women have decided to try their luck?

    What's your obsession about "being called out" and all that crap?

    At what point did I say my point was because of sleeping pills?

    Bore off you pathetic Rat.

    Absolutely disgraceful. Surely someone must have proof checked this before printing.

    Bail being denied in rape charges are genuinely rare cases. There must be a substantial amount of evidence available or there was a built on investigation on Mendy over time.

    The entire point of an Internet forum is to discuss things, so when somebody says something which is clearly despicable (like assuming rape victims are just liars after a payday) I will reply. I’m not going to mince my words when the original post is so utterly void of any human decency.


    You didn’t. And I didn’t say you did.

    - You posted that the people who reported Mendy for rape were lying for money

    - I said that was a grim thing to say because to be honest you have to be a horrible garbage person with no emotions to think like that.

    - You replied about a dream you had and how you shouldn’t take sleeping pills.

    - I commented that it was a weird reply.

    If you can’t see why saying that you think alleged rape victims (from someone who apparently has had numerous run ins with the police) are just telling “convincing stories” to get money out of a famous person then you really do need to log off, close your laptop/phone/computer and take a long hard look at yourself because you’re horrible, horrible person and I genuinely fear for any woman who has to be alone with you in real life.
