Yaya Toure warned Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy to adapt more quickly with the English Premier League. According to Premier League competition is very different from those in Ligue 1.
Mendy brought in City from Monaco with a transfer value of 52 million pounds. Banderol who then broke the record as the world’s most expensive defender at this time.
Toure, one of the senior figures who have defended Manchester City since 2010, said that the 23-year-old defender just brought in will have a nice impact on Pep Guardiola’s game system. Mendy’s speed will increasingly turn on the wing side of The Citizens.
Mendi previously had no heavy burden on the price tag owned while playing for Monaco, the article he recruited last season’s champion Ligue 1 from Marseille for 11.5 million pounds in June 2016.

“You will see it in the English League that how strong he really is, how much energy he has. This man is one of the most anticipated, ”
“I hope he’ll be okay in the Premier League, because it’s a tough league, and we all know you have to adapt for the first month, or some players will pass you,”

Mendy’s appearance is not very special, where he only made 24 appearances in all competitions for Monaco. But he was able to bring Monaco to embrace the title Ligue 1, with eight points ahead of closest rival Paris Saint-Germain.
