Mendy: I spoke with Guardiola before penning Man City deal

Benjamin Mendy has again admitted the presence of Pep Guardiola convinced him about moving to Manchester City.

The France left-back quit Ligue 1 champions Monaco for City last summer.

Mendy recalled to Telefoot: "I wanted to taste abroad and leave with my head held high. Guardiola played a huge part in my choice. We talked directly about football, philosophy of play. He is in the continuity of the excellent coaches that I could have.

"The objective 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."
