Benjamin Mendy, the controversial video


By: Manu Tournoux

A video of Benjamin Mendy makes people cringe: the 2018 world champion accompanies supporters of FC Lorient who are insulting Stade Brestois, two days before the derby between the two Breton clubs.

Warmly supported by the FC Lorient public during his debut with the Merlus on September 17, Benjamin Mendy will be in the sights of Stade Brestois supporters, Wednesday (9 p.m.), at the Stade Francis-Le Blé. The X account of Brest On Aira podcast on SB29 news, republished a video featuring the 2018 world champion.

In this video recorded some time ago in front of a bar, the 29-year-old left-back, St. Patrick’s Day hat on his head, cheers Lorient supporters who are insulting Stade Brestois. The presence of the French international made these Lorient fans happy and, obviously, the scene was filmed and then shared on social networks…

Brest is not only playing a Breton derby against Lorient on Wednesday evening, Eric Roy’s team hopes to finish the first leg of the Ligue 1 season in style, while it is in fifth place before this 18th day, at four points from Nice, the runner-up to PSG! The Morbihannais are in bad shape, in penultimate place in the ranking.
