Where is Benjamin Mendy? That was the question on everyone’s lips at Manchester City on Friday.
City manager Pep Guardiola was unsure of Mendy’s whereabouts ahead of Sunday’s Premier League showdown against Chelsea, with the French left-back recovering from a knee injury.
Mendy, who had been granted permission to travel in Europe, appeared to suggest he was at Hong Kong International Airport in an Instagram story on Friday.
The 24-year-old maintained the mystery over his whereabouts as City team-mate Kyle Walker joined the fun via social media.
With the hashtag #WheresMendy, the France international raised more eyebrows over his location in a Twitter post which appeared to suggest he was in Dubai.
Later, it turned out that the defender was in Hong Kong on the next leg of his globe-trotting journey.
