Arrived from Olympique Lyonnais, Ferland Mendy was presented on Wednesday by Real Madrid.
Unsurprisingly, the reception was less spectacular than the one reserved for Eden Hazard last week. The crowd at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium was not the same, which did not prevent the left side from feeling any stress. The proof, the neo-merengue lost its means in the moment of the traditional juggling. What amusing local journalists, also surprised by Mendy's response to whom our colleagues asked if he had a physical advantage over his rival Marcelo.
" I do not know at all, we did not see without shirtreplied the ex-Lyonnais, whose joke made the whole room laugh. I do not have much to say about Marcelo, I prefer to meet him directly to speak. Of course, Mendy did not do this for long. Already under pressure, the French international came on tiptoe. No question for him to bend his trunk evoking his duel with Zinedine Zidane.
Mendy is getting very small
" In big clubs there is always competition, there have always been very good players in all positions, I can not say anything while the season has not yet startedhe said. I arrive through the small door, but I had a good season, club and selection, I hope to do everything to succeed. It's better to try to play, but I'm not a coach, it's not up to me. Recruited for 48 million euros, Mendy should benefit from healthy competition.
