That Dundee game was an absolute car crash for Mendy. He kept getting caught in possession. I can only assume that in France’s lower leagues the game is played at a slower pace with less pressing. Mendy wanted to take the ball out of defence but he didn’t seem to have much awareness of opposition players. Was it Paul McGowan who kept robbing him? He was bullied that day.
Difficult to come back from that. McGlynn tried Mendy again, shortly after, against Peterhead. We were 3-0 and cruising. Mendy played a short back pass for Peterhead to make it 3-1. Then he nearly scored an own goal with a header, so he is dangerous, just need to get that happening at the other end. After those performances, McGlynn was understandably reluctant to play him.
Physically he looks a machine. So it wouldn’t surprise me if McGlynn could turn him into a decent footballer. The coronavirus thing is just eating into his contract time, though, so time is against him.
