Guardiola played 'great role' in Manchester City move - Mendy

The France global was signed from the Ligue 1 champions for a fee of £52m in July, making him the world's most expensive defender.

The France worldwide, who has four senior caps to his name after his impressive campaign at Monaco last season, has also shone on his four Premier League appearances for City so far.

England midfielder Fabian Delph will start on the left-hand side of the City defence in Mendy's absence against the Ukrainian champions, with Guardiola lacking senior cover at left-back after a significant squad overhaul during pre-season.

Benjamin Mendy has revealed that Pep Guardiola "played a great role" in his decision to leave Monaco for Manchester City during the summer. "There is a long way to go, but with work everything is possible".

Guardiola was optimistic on Mendy's fitness after his withdrawal against Palace.

"It was a personal decision". "He feels better - it was a kick". "I asked him the question, he feels good, it's great for him".

City won their Champions League opener at Feyenoord 4-0, while Shakhtar were victorious against Serie A high-flyers Napoli.

"[The objective is to] win two or three titles with Manchester City", he told Telefoot. "There is a very big project here, one of the biggest in Europe".
