A number of Manchester City fans were disgusted with the performance of Benjamin Mendy during their 1-o defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.
The Citizens came into this game as the Premier League champions, and after seeing Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all win comfortably on Saturday, they will have been hoping to get their campaign off to the best possible start. However, Spurs had other plans, and Heung-Min Son scored the only goal of the game for the home side, who have now won this fixture for the third season in a row.
£18m-valued Mendy (Transfermarkt) was chosen to start on the left side of the back four, but it was a decision which backfired from Pep Guardiola. The France international did not look comfortable, losing ten of his 14 duels, being dribbled past four times, losing the ball on 16 occasions and finding a team-mate with just one of his nine crosses (Sofascore).
Is Mendy good enough for Man City?
These fans were far from happy with what they saw from the left-back, with one even saying that he has worse than former Etihad Stadium flop Eliaquim Mangala, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Mendy’s display
“Mendy should never play again, Zinchenko so clear”
“I’ve been negative about some players when they’re bad in games but that’s mainly cos I’m annoyed at losing apart from Mendy, I’ve never hated a player that much”
“Consistently playing Mendy will always hinder us”
“Mendy is now officially worse than Mangala”
“He must be wondering what he’s signed up for watching utter trash players like Mendy and Sterling.”
“Permanent problem is the fact Benjamin Mendy cannot play football.”
In other news, lots of Man City fans raged at this club decision.
