Man City confirm investigation into Mendy's breach

Manchester City have said that they will investigate the allegation that their player Benjamin Mendy breached COVID-19 restrictions by hosting friends at his house. 

 According to The Sun, those present at the home of the house during the gathering include the footballer’s girlfriend, his niece and nephew who all live with him. 

 Mendy also admitted that he allowed a chief and two other friends to attend the gathering at his Cheshire home. 

Reacting to the allegation, a City spokesman said, “The club is aware of a New Year’s Eve COVID-19 breach involving Benjamin Mendy and the subsequent media reporting of it. 

 “While it is understood that elements of this incident have been misinterpreted in the reports and that the player has publicly apologized for his error, the club is disappointed to learn of the transgression and will be conducting an internal investigation.” 

 A spokesperson for Mendy told The Sun: “Benjamin and his partner allowed a chef and two friends of his partner to attend his property for a dinner party on New Year’s Eve,” a statement said. 

 “Ben accepts that this is a breach of Covid-19 protocols and is sorry for his actions in this matter. Ben has had a Covid test and is liaising with Manchester City about this.”
