Benjamin Mendy (French pronunciation: ; born 17 July 1994) is a French professional footballer who plays as a left back for Premier League club Manchester City and the French national team.
After coming through Le Havre's youth academy, Mendy began his playing career with the club's reserve side in 2010, eventually being promoted to the first team a year later. He remained with the club until 2013, when he joined Ligue 1 side Marseille. Mendy spent the next three seasons with Les Olympiens before leaving for Monaco, with whom he won the national championship in 2016–17. In the summer of 2017, Mendy moved to the English club Manchester City on a then world-record transfer fee for a defender. He subsequently won the Premier League in his first season in England.
Mendy made his senior debut for France in 2017 after previously being capped by France youth teams at under-16, under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels. He was chosen in France's squad for the 2018 World Cup which they won.
