Benjamin Mendy has admitted that Pep Guardiola played a major role in his decision to join Manchester City.
The French left-back joined Manchester City from Monaco in July and is the world most expensive defender St £52 million
Mendy has started quite well in the Premier League and is happy to work with the former Bayern and Barcelona manager.
“I wanted to taste football abroad and leave with my head held high, and Guardiola played a great role in my decision,” he told TF1’s ‘Telefoot’.
“We talked frankly about football and philosophy, and he is a continuation of the excellent coaches I have had. I am proud of the start I’ve had to my career.”
“Can I become the best left-back in the world? Why not?” he said.
“There is a long way to go, but with work anything is possible. It’s not completely crazy.
“The objective for this season? Win two or three titles with Manchester City; We have one of the best projects in Europe and we want to continue writing the history of this club.
“France are going to qualify for the World Cup and we can win it, I believe so. We have good young players and experienced players.”
