If they are dribbling and lose the dribbling it doesn’t matter.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Benjamin Mendy (right) missed most of the 2017/18 season with a knee ligament injury © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 17 – Pep Guardiola has revealed that Benjamin Mendy missed Manchester City’s Premier League victory against Fulham because of a knee problem and he does not know how long the French defender will be out.The left-back missed much of last season with a knee ligament injury sustained against Crystal Palace last September.last_img read more

It’s hard to say, Mazzarri is a coach of the highest level, he’s proved that everywhere he’s worked.“I don’t think the geographical location of his new club is important, it’s the project.
