Benjamin Mendy Takes to Twitter for Some Stupendous Banter Following Scenes at Bournemouth

Publish date:

Benjamin Mendy is fast becoming the Premier League's best character on social media, and the Frenchman was back at it again with some great banter on Saturday night.

The £52m summer signing from Monaco started for the first time for his new club against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, but despite a decent debut, it was his antics on Twitter afterwards that got everybody talking.

The game finished 2-1 to the Citizens after Raheem Sterling won it at the death with a deflected effort, which prompted the England star to celebrate wildly with the travelling fans.

The former Liverpool star received his marching orders via a second booking, and Mendy uploaded a picture of himself tussling with a police officer during the incident after the game with the caption 'When you still haven't paid for that cheeky Nando parking fine'.

It is, of course, a reference to the full-back's antics earlier in the week in which he was issued a parking ticket after leaving his Ferrari in a taxi rank and nipping into a Nandos branch in Manchester.

Mendy is already worshipped on Twitter for his down-to-earth style, and has proved a real hit with his new supporters, who love a star with banter and personality.
