Man City coach Guardiola confused over Mendy’s whereabouts

Benjamin Mendy may be in hot water with his manager

Mendy had been in Barcelona on Thursday for assessment on his knee, on which he underwent surgery in November, with City's preferred specialist Dr Ramon Cugat.

That was the question on everyone's lips at Manchester City on Friday.

The only thing more colourful than Pep Guardiola's jumper yesterday was his language as the Manchester City manager became embroiled in a weird hoax by defender Benjamin Mendy.

Benjamin Mendy insisted that he was not in Hong Kong after his an Instagram post showing his location.

First, the Spaniard turned up wearing a striking top with multi-coloured stripes that may have had viewers watching his pre-match press conference on Sky Sports adjusting their sets. The Manchester City manager was bemused and swore on live television. 'I didn't know. F***! He said he was going to Paris but Hong Kong - I don't know/ I have to understand Instagram. "I need to download an Instagram account", Guardiola said.

Speaking about Mendy's injury, Guardiola said: 'Benjamin Mendy is injured and it's not easy. "[It's not okay to be in] Hong Kong, definitely not".

A typical answer followed. "And especially when certain narratives have been created in terms of where you are in your career". KD, who was " tired of being second " way back in 2013, was still stuck there reputationally, even in ultimate victory.

Guardiola was told of the posting as he held a press conference later in the day to preview the champions' Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

"I feel they play good and try to win the games, I think they will be there until the end and we have to be there to win our games to decide the Premier League".

"I know the fans love it, but the manager is the chief of the team, so when he says something I have to listen to him", he added.

He appeared as a second-half substitute in City's Carabao Cup semi-final second leg win over Burton on January 23 but has missed the last four games as his comeback is carefully managed.

Liverpool were three points ahead of City before Guardiola's side defeated Everton 2-0 earlier this week.
