Kyle Walker was left confused by a journalist’s question about ‘Bernard Mendy’ in Manchester City’s pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday night’s Champions League clash against Club Brugge.
The right-back has talked to the media alongside his manager, Pep Guardiola, but was left bemused when a reporter began to ask questions about a player he’d never heard of.
The reporter asked Walker: “Just wondering what the competition is like for you going up against Bernard Mendy for the right-back spot, and does Bernard push you all the way? I hear he’s a character as well?”
The Englishman turned to Man City’s press officer and asked: “Who’s that… Mendy?”
The journalist then replied: “Just in consideration of the right-back spot going up against Bernard Mendy for the position. Does he really push you for that spot? And I hear he’s a bit of a character around the dressing room as well…”
Walker asked the press officer: “Doesn’t he play for PSG?”
More awkwardness and then the press officer finally said: “I think we’re a little confused, so we’ll leave it there…”
Here is the awkward yet hilarious video:
😂 Kyle Walker being left utterly bemused in his press conference is the best thing you’ll watch today.
