MANCHESTER CITY have trolled Benjamin Mendy after the defender was nutmegged during the 4-0 win over Feyenoord.
City thrashed Dutch champions Feyenoord 4-0 as defender John Stones scored twice to get Pep Guardiola’s side off to a flying Champions League start on Wednesday.
But despite the scoreline, Mendy could not escape the aftermath of the nutmeg which occurred right in front of boss Pep Guardiola.
He tweeted: “Sorry don’t know what nutmeg you are talking about guys.”
This prompted City’s official Twitter account to respond with a GIF showing the incident with a caption reading: “Think they mean this one, Ben.”

A red-faced Mendy then replied: “No more battery sorry. We are supposed to be in same club remember. What when I score the own goal everyone waits for.”
But Mendy got his own back later when he posted a picture of two-times goal scorer John Stones along with a caption trolling City strikers Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
It read: “Gabriel who?? Sergio who?? Ahahaha my man is going to start as a striker soon I swear. #SharkTeam we keeping eating #CmonCity.”

Mendy pretended he don’t remember the incident after the game but City was quick to remind him with the GIF.
Stones headed home on two minutes after a sublime chip by skipper David Silva, and after Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus had made the win safe, the England centre-back capped off the evening with a second powerful header for a memorable brace.
“The most important thing and what pleased me the most (about the win) is the way in which we did it,” said City coach Guardiola.
“We did not play back… We were aggressive… We had the legs to run on the side, especially on the right and created the chances. Enough to win the game comfortably.”
