Benjamin Mendy's 'joke' Hong Kong trip backfires with Man City boss Guardiola

Benjamin Mendy's 'joke' Hong Kong trip backfires with Man City boss Guardiola

Pep Guardiola wasn't best pleased when he found out Benjamin Mendy was in Hong Kong, and the Frenchman has hilariously responded.

The World Cup-winning Manchester City full-back has had his fair share of injury trouble since arriving in England from Monaco in 2017, suffering another setback after he came off the bench in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final at the end of January.

Mendy later tweeted to confirm he was only joking, and is indeed back with his City team-mates but will miss the clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

Wow, I didn't know.

"He said he was going to Paris but Hong Kong is far away, I need to download Instagram".

An estimated 200 million women and girls alive today have been subject to this harmful practice. Female genital mutilation leads to long-term physical, psychological and social consequences.

'He's injured, it's not easy - meniscus.

"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". It will definitely not be okay if he is in Hong Kong'. He needs to readapt. I have to understand Instagram. You have to be careful'.

When asked at a press conference whether the apparent trip was planned, Guardiola - who believed Mendy to still be in Barcelona - responded: "Wow".

Meanwhile, Guardiola rejected suggestions that Liverpool are feeling the pressure after back-toback draws saw them drop below City at the top of the table.

Pep Guardiola was moved to use an expletive on live television when he suddenly became unsure of Benjamin Mendy's whereabouts on Friday afternoon.
