Benjamin Mendy heeds Guardiola advice to cut phone use

Benjamin Mendy has said he is taking Pep Guardiola’s advice by staying off social media when at Manchester City’s training ground or in the dressing room.

The Frenchman has a huge following on social media with 987,000 and 2.1m followers on Twitter and Instagram respectively.

“Every time I am with my phone I am on Instagram or Twitter and [so] now I need to be careful,” Mendy said.

“When I am at the training centre, the CFA [City Football Academy], I don’t use my phone but instead I listen to the manager.”

After the 2-0 win at Arsenal in City’s opening league game of the season Guardiola said: “Mendy has a lot of things to improve and hopefully we can convince him to forget a little bit the social media and improve a few things.”

In reference to this, Mendy said: “Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not. I trust him, he has more experience of the players. I go without my phone. I don’t change but in the dressing room I don’t use my phone at all. It’s better.”
