Benjamin Mendy Is A World Cup And Premier League Winner

Every year football has its unsung and nearly unnoticed hero and for 2018 it's got to be Benjamin Mendy for ending up with Premier League and World Cup winners' medals despite playing such little football.

Luka Modric won the World Cup's Golden Ball award and could soon be the Ballon d'Or winner, Thibaut Courtois won the Golden Glove award, Harry Kane was the Golden Boot winner and Kylian Mbappe, to the surprise of no one, won the Young Player of the Tournament award.

Those are the people that will be written about in the annals of history when someone comes to write the chapter about the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the men who really made a difference.

However for all of those that are obviously heroes there are plenty of others that can quickly been forgotten but none fall into that category as much as Benjamin Mendy.

The French left-back already won the Premier League with Manchester City this year before being part of Didier Deschamps' side to win the World Cup and he's won those medals barely playing any football, which has left many impressed:

Mendy signed for City last summer after helping Monaco to win the Ligue 1 title but he picked up a serious ligament injury early in the season that left him out of action until the last few games.

His previous performances gave him enough in the bank for Didier Deschamps to pick him in the World Cup squad but he played just 40 minutes in one substitution appearance in Russia.

The leader of the Shark Team has done bloody well to pick up two trophies as part of two brilliant team whilst barely playing.

2018 really is the year of Benjamin Mendy, the kind of unsung hero we'd all like to relate too.
