Pep Guardiola criticises Manchester City star Benjamin Mendy over late show

  • A dejected Ryan Giggs the Manchester United interim manager walks off the pitch following his team's 1-0 defeat during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester United and

Defending champions Manchester City don't now own the top spot in the Premier League standings, but Pep Guardiola just needs one slip, one stumble, one opening by Liverpool to take control.

Mendy has been sidelined for City's last four games with what has been described as a "bruised metatarsal".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reportedly lost his patience with Mendy after the latest example of unprofessionalism from the left-back.

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

Asked about Mendy at his prematch news conference on Friday, Guardiola said: "Yes, he was late. He knows it. I spoke with him", said Guardiola.


That suggests they might limit City to a respectable scoreline, although the fact that Guardiola's team scored three at home to Brighton last season indicates they have the capability to open a wider gap this time.

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

Another injured City star, Kevin De Bruyne, is making better progress from his knee injury and will return to some parts of the team's training sessions next week.

The 18-year-old midfielder is yet to start a Premier League game but Guardiola said he was ready for his opportunity. "But I think Phil would like to be here and the club, there is no doubt, and the manager - hopefully it will happen sooner or later but I'm not involved".

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola is expecting a hard afternoon against a Brighton side he admires and warned his players they must focus ahead of a week that features games against Hoffenheim and Liverpool. "After that he has to compete with his teammates and sometimes it's not possible, but he's ready". "He is a young player and has to make his own career step by step".
