Benjamin Mendy Has A Football Pitch Inside His House And It's Insane
Benjamin Mendy has revealed that he has a football pitch in his house and it's peak Benjamin Mendy.
The Manchester City left-back purchased the £4.8million property in Cheshire back in 2018 from cricket legend Freddie Flintoff.
Mendy gave OTRO a tour of his home and revealed the giant football pitch he has in it.
The 25-year-old shows off the sprawling pitch and explains some of the training he does on it.
"When like Riyad (Mahrez) comes, (Raheem) Sterling comes, we put the net in the middle.
"You see the strap I put on the floor.
"It's like the limit and we play two touch.
"You know, like tennis with feet, and we stay for two or three hours."
It's an interesting insight to how elite level players hone their skills.
The World Cup winner went on to show his gym equipment, and was asked who he thinks the hardest trainer at Manchester City is.
Despite leaving last summer, Mendy still praised former captain Vincent Kompany as being the hardest trainer.
"I think it was Vincent Kompany. In the gym, he was a beast."
This season however, he gives the nod to Argentine centre-half Nicolas Otamendi.
Once showing off his gym and indoor pitch, Mendy then goes to his trophy room.
There he shows off his medals from the one he got from City's Premier League triumph last season to a replica of the World Cup trophy.
Mendy then shows off a personalised ring gifted to him by international teammate Paul Pogba.
The Manchester United midfielder gifted the entire France squad the rings after their triumph in Russia.
He said: 'I forgot about this gift from Paul Pogba - the rings of the champions. He gave one to each player and said before the World Cup, "if we win, I will do something for you guys".
'And he put each name - like "Mendy - 22", some diamonds, the two stars, 'world champions. And here you have all the scores from the group stage.'
He also showed off his shirt collection and highlighted the best player he's ever played against.
'Eden Hazard, the best player I have ever seen,' Mendy proclaimed. 'The skill, everything, the pace, the shots, the strength and he's a very good guy.'
He also praised teammate Sterling as being one of the top players in the Premier League currently.
