The Frenchman is getting ready to go.
Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy can not wait for the text informing him that football has actually got the thumbs-up to return.
The Premier League started stepping up ‘Project Restart’ today as players began a phased return to training in little, social-distant groups.
A resumption of play is set up next month and City left-back Mendy is champing at the bit.
“I can’t wait,” the World Cup winner stated. “We are simply waiting for the thumbs-up. All over we see we are going to start on this date which date.
” Now I wait for the men to text us to inform us the league is going to start at this time, and we are going to be so delighted.
” However I understand they are going to take all the preventative measures when we are back.
” It’s not like they are simply going to state ‘let’s go play’, they are going to check whatever and I think that’s why it requires time.
“When? We don’t know, we can’t decide anything, we need to follow the club. I think all of us firstly want to protect the people and then if we can play then why not? We will wait and see.”
Mendy has actually begun painting and enhanced his cooking abilities during lockdown, which has actually accompanied the start of Ramadan.
“All of the people have missed football, but at this time now, for Muslim people it means I can be more focused on Ramadan,” he stated.
” We do not train, we can fast, however the mosques are closed and we can’t head out or see family at Eid.
“So, I have missed the football but it makes you focus on the more important things. I have tried to develop myself and learn every day.”
