Man City’s 2018-19 treble celebrations

Manchester City finally got to celebrate their success on Monday.

Manchester was awash in blue yesterday as Pep Guardiola and his players marked their historic treble-winning season in style.

City won the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup this term. No team has previously wrapped up all the major domestic honours.

Why Benjamin Mendy missed the party

Every player in Man City’s squad attended the event except for one: Benjamin Mendy.

The 24-year-old has struggled with injuries this season. Indeed, the left-back only managed to play in 14 Premier League matches this campaign.

At the same time, Mendy has attracted criticism regarding his professionalism.

That piqued when viral spilled out onto social media of Mendy partying in the early hours before the Manchester derby with United.

While Guardiola defended Mendy on that occasion, a feeling has stuck that the Frenchman doesn’t take his career at City seriously enough.

Indeed, Man City have been linked with a possible swoop for Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell.

However, Mendy may have steered himself back into Guardiola’s good books by missing Monday’s festivities.

As confirmed in the Times, Mendy missed the party with his team-mates as he appears fully focused on his rehab:

Mendy is in Barcelona having treatment at Dr Ramón Cugat’s clinic on a knee injury.

The Times understands that Mendy recently had key-hole surgery on the knee in an attempt to remedy the problem.

He has cancelled a summer holiday to complete extra fitness work and ensure that he is ready for the club’s pre-season tour to China and Japan, which begins in July.
