Premier League Player reportedly breached protocol
Benjamin Mendy has found himself in hot water after allegedly organising a New Year’s Eve party, breaching COVID-19 protocol.
Manchester City have been hit by coronavirus cases lately, with both Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker returning positive test results on Christmas Day. Now, Mendy has presented the club with more problems.
“There was a lot of noise coming from the house and you could hear girls shouting and enjoying themselves,” a source told The Sun.
Pep Guardiola had reminded his players to obey the rules in place earlier in the week.
“The club is aware of a New Year’s Eve COVID-19 breach involving Benjamin Mendy and the subsequent media reporting of it,” Man City said in a statement.
“While it is understood that elements of this incident have been misinterpreted in the reports, and that the player has publicly apologised for his error, the club is disappointed to learn of the transgression and will be conducting an internal investigation.”
During the party, Mendy tweeted to urge his followers to take care of themselves in the new year.
