​Man City left-back Mendy impressed with squad in preseason

Manchester City left back Benjamin Mendy admits confidence is high at the club.

The Premier League champions are set to defend their title, but first must navigate a Community Shield clash against Leicester City on the weekend.

Mendy, who has been involved in all three of the club's preseason friendlies, spoke after the 4-1 win over Blackpool on Tuesday night.

"It was a nice game – the last one before the Community Shield Final," Mendy said post-game, per the club's website.

"It was great and we are happy to have won the game.

"We did well – we worked a lot on the tactics of the manager. Every player is feeling good. We are happy."

"I feel sharp, I feel good," he added on his own form.

"We need to keep going like that for the rest of the season."
