You can’t help but feel that Benjamin Mendy is one of the unluckiest players around at the moment and especially in the Premier League.
Even though he has two English crowns to his name already, he simply can’t catch a break with all those injuries hampering his career. Just last season, Mendy suffered from three different injuries, including a meniscal problem, foot injury and knee surgery.
This, when all put together, meant that he missed a total of 33 games, putting only ten appearances under his belt in the Premier League and two in the Champions League.
He did recover towards the end of the season, but was used very sparingly by Pep Guardiola bar one game in April against Crystal Palace.
That is not stopping him from having a great summer though, as the Frenchman posted a holiday snap on Instagram that immediately caught the eye of multiple superstars.
Antoine Griezmann was among the first ones to comment as the coveted forward just had one word to say to the recovering Citizen, which roughly translates into “dude”.
Corentin Tolisso, Bayern Munich’s ace, was also on the scene and just replied with a series of emojis.
There’s no denying that Mendy is an excellent left-back and Guardiola will be eager to have him back in the squad. In his ten Premier League appearances, he still managed five assists, which is a great return, especially for a defender.
