Benjamin Mendy: Man City defender has won six trophies despite playing just 22 matches

Benjamin Mendy may not have played much football over the past couple of seasons, but that has clearly not affected his ability to win trophies.

The French left-back, who has missed much of this campaign for Manchester City with another serious knee injury, has made just 22 appearances in all competitions for club and country in the last year.

Despite this, Mendy has still managed to collect an amazing total of six trophies during that time.

He’s won back-to-back Premier Leagues, two Carabao Cups, the Community Shield and the World Cup – playing just 40 minutes in Russia, as France won their second World Cup after beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.

This means the 24-year-old, who joined from Monaco in 2017 having won the Ligue 1 title in his his final season, averages a trophy nearly every three-and-a-half games.

Mendy was not around to celebrate his team’s 4-1 win at Brighton which helped them win the Premier League ahead of Liverpool, as he is in Barcelona for treatment on his knee.

He will collect a winner’s medal having made 10 appearances (five needed to qualify for a medal) for City this season and he could add an FA Cup one to that haul next week, if Pep Guardiola’s side overcome Watford at Wembley.
