Pep Guardiola wasn’t best pleased when he found out Benjamin Mendy was in Hong Kong, and the Frenchman has hilariously responded.
Mendy has been away from the Manchester City first-team through injury. He returned against Burton Albion in the League Cup but suffered a set-back, putting him back on the sideline.
In the meantime, Mendy went away. It appeared he was in Asia after tagging the ‘Hong Kong International Airport’ on Instagram.
A shock to Guardiola who thought he was in Paris.
“Wow. I didn’t know it. What? F*ck,” he said when asked about Mendy’s whereabouts. “He said he was going to Paris but Hong Kong is far away, I’ll have to install Instagram. It will definitely not be okay if he is in Hong Kong.
“Yesterday he was in Barcelona.”
Asked if it would be okay to be in Hong Kong, the Spanish gaffer replied: “No, no definitely not. Definitely not.”
Mendy’s since responded to Guardiola’s words and it’s typically brilliant.
“It was just joking with my uber driver I dont want no problems Pep,” he said on Twitter.
Manchester City, meanwhile, host Chelsea on Sunday after regaining top spot in the Premier League. But they could be back in second place when they kick-off as Liverpool play Bournemouth a day before.
