Benjamin Mendy has vowed to remain on the right track after Manchester City’s 1-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup semifinal.
The French international was given a run of 79 minutes by Pep Guardiola as the defending English champions kept alive their hopes of a potential quadruple this season.
Despite spending a big amount on the Left back City haven’t had many chances to utilise Mendy’s potential. Persistent injury problems became a matter of concern as the player had to undergo surgery following his knee injury last year.
He also seemed to have a difference with Guardiola as the manager indirectly warned the player a number of times to keep himself indulged to football-related activities.
Mendy said, “I feel so good, and I am very happy. The team-mates and the staff have been really good.
“I am not a doctor. I follow the rules. This injury – when I came back sometimes the swelling stayed. But now it’s good, we can forget the past and think about the future. I feel really fit and I want to give everything I can to help my team. I have missed a lot of games.
“We will have a good rest and we will follow the rules. We are happy and we want to win as many trophies as possible. So we try to play good, to give everything for the fans. That is what we did.”
