-You play FIFA?
-Yeah, I play. -Who’s your team?
-It’s so good. -I’m going to tell the truth.
-Tell the truth. -I played for Marseille in France.
-OK. -And their rival is PSG.
-OK. But sometimes when I play FIFA,
I take PSG. OK. My card… To be honest, I can’t complain
because I was injured for a long time. When you play,
they upgrade you all the time. You know? And I think, when I finish the season… -Yeah, you will go higher.
-Yeah. Yo, it’s Ben Mendy. -Bizzle.
-With Bizzle. What about football?
Do you like this sport? -Yeah, I like football.
-Yeah? I wanted to play football
when I was younger, but my parents didn’t like it. African parents
who wanted me to go to school and study, so I didn’t get the support. So, I chose music instead,
but they didn’t even want me to do music. I had to go behind their back… -Do it discreetly.
-…to the studio. When I made a song, about 18 years ago, they were like,
“OK, you’re taking it seriously now.” “You can make a career,
you can support us.” You know, I had to prove myself first
for them to believe. But before, it was difficult. They wanted me to go to university,
be a lawyer… -Or something like that.
-Yeah, the same. You look like
you could be a rapper though. -What about you?
-Maybe. Yeah, you look like
you’ve got the drip to be a rapper. You look more like a rapper than me today. Sometimes I try,
but it’s not easy to find the lyrics. -It’s so hard.
-Yeah, yeah. This is the most difficult.
I know, like, you explain life. -But to find the good words…
-Yeah, the good words. The timing, what you want to say… Everything is so difficult. -People need to know, it’s hard work.
-Yes. It’s not easy, it’s hard. What position do you like in football?
Striker? I’m left-footed, so left wing. Yeah, yeah. Left foot, left foot. -You know it.
-I’m fast. I’m fast,
so I could play striker sometimes, but I like to run down
and cut in like Sterling, man. -Yeah.
-Top corner, left foot, man. But I can’t complain because I feel like
football’s a short career as well. Yeah, very short. I’ve just hit mid-30s now,
so I’d probably have to retire now. Whereas, with music,
I can just keep going forever. -You know, Jay-Z is like 49 or 50.
-Yeah. Like all of these people,
you can just keep going. Have you thought about
what you want to do after football? I don’t know yet but I don’t want
to be on TV talking about football. -No commentary.
-No, I want to go far away. Live my life with my family,
relax, chill… Yeah, I don’t blame you, man. But you’re a good player, man.
So, I feel like you can go until maybe 40. You could still be here.
What about a manager? Manager? Maybe, but it’s so difficult. When I see Pep… You always need to make a choice
whether you like some player… It’s difficult, you know? Always needing to watch the games,
needing to talk, having meetings… -Bro, nah.
-Yeah, it’s too much work. You just want to come, train, play… If you always win, it’s OK,
but when you lose, it’s difficult – the press conferences,
the fans, the owner comes to you. If the team played well but you lost,
they can kick you out. Wow! Even if you win? Yeah, being a manager is not easy. Obviously, you play in the Premier League,
you play for France… What’s the difference in the dressing room? It wasn’t easy when I came. I’m not shy, but I didn’t speak English. Right now,
my English is better but not perfect. With Sterling, we got on straight away, so he made it easy
to come into the dressing room. Nice. You have some, not French players, but like Bernardo Silva is Portuguese
but he speaks French. We were together in Monaco.
Riyad Mahrez, the same. The differences?
I don’t think there are a lot. In the end, Man City are a very big team, so it’s much more about work, work, work. Who do you hang around with
in the dressing room? Do you have certain people
you are close to? -Yeah. Sterling.
-Yeah. He’s my close guy. Mahrez and I were together
in the academy before. I’m the kind of guy
who’s cool with everyone. -Everyone.
-Yeah. So, for a France game, what’s it like? In the dressing room, it’s good vibes,
with Pogba, Mbappé, Griezmann and Dembélé. -We have the same vibe, same mood.
-Yeah. Sometimes we laugh
when Paul speaks Spanish… -OK.
-…when Kylian tries to speak English. You obviously played
in different leagues – you played in France,
in the Premier League – what is the difference? In Premier League,
the difference is more box to box. -More intense.
-OK. Like, people say, in England,
the Premier League is more physical. But, to tell the truth, in France too,
you have good teams that are stronger. We played against Norwich,
we lost the game. Before the game, you’d say City would
win the game, but it’s not like this. I think the players there
fight a lot for the shirt. -For the shirt.
-Yeah. So, it’s difficult. It’s not easy. -No game is guaranteed.
-No, no game is guaranteed. There’s some real old school
stuff in here. So, who was your inspiration
football-wise growing up? It’s you, bro. Me? You saw me back in the day.
My left foot, man. I saw your left, bro. No, honestly, when you’re younger,
you like all the players that you can see on TV,
the Champions League nights. You see a striker score… Because when I started football,
I was a striker. -Yeah, me too. I was a striker.
-Yeah? No, I wanted to be a striker, but my PE teacher
said I should be a centre-back. -I said, “I don’t want to be centre-back.”
-Me too. But, you know what? If I played centre-back,
I think I could have made it professional because nobody wanted that. -As I’m tall and everyone wanted to score.
-Yeah, yeah. And I was like,
“No, I want to score, I want the glory.” -You want to be doing this.
-Yeah. -Score and…
-You want to be at the front. You want to celebrate, all the glory… I liked to take the ball with my back to goal
and run with the ball on the attack. So, afterwards, they put me as a winger,
I was doing the same, then they put me left-back. And now, if I go more, I’ll be a keeper. -How do you like it? You like left-back?
-Yeah, I like it. I love this. You’re one of the best in the world.
I’m not just saying that. -Thank you.
-You’re good. -Thanks, bro.
-You’ve done well, adapted well. I can tell you wanted to be a striker
as you’re comfortable on the ball. And you’re fast –
you can tell you want to attack. -And you and Sterling work together well.
-Yeah. When you have a relationship
outside of the dressing room, you know each other on the pitch,
where you will be, if you will go forward,
he might stay back and vice versa… Ederson is the best at this on the pitch –
we can help each other a lot. -Yeah, definitely, man.
-Yeah. Any other players
that you used to look up to, like “I want to be like him”? -Patrice Evra.
Yeah. He was a good left-back. -Abidal.
-Abidal, yeah. He played for Barcelona and Lyon.
He was very good, too. -And Roberto Carlos.
-Oh, yeah, Carlos. That left foot, man. -Magic. Like, how? To this day…
-Bow down. He was a machine. -Unbelievable.
-Crazy. To this day, I don’t know.
I need to meet him. How can he make the ball…
It’s like someone’s controlling it. -Big legs like in FIFA.
-What? -You play FIFA?
-Yeah, I play. -Who’s your team?
-It’s so good. -I’m going to tell the truth, man.
-Tell the truth. -I played for Marseille in France.
-OK. -And their rival is PSG.
-OK. But sometimes when I play FIFA,
I take PSG. OK. But FIFA, you just pick the best team. -You want to win.
-Pick a team to beat the guy next to you. -Me, I’m Arsenal.
-Arsenal? But I don’t use Arsenal for FIFA.
To be honest, Barcelona or Man City. -Yeah.
-Yeah. -I just want to win.
-Fast, stronger, good players. You’ve got the good players, strikers,
you’ve got the balance. Arsenal, we’re OK on FIFA,
but we need more ratings, man. Get the ratings up, man. My card… To be honest, I can’t complain
because I was injured for a long time. When you play,
they upgrade you all the time. You know? And I think, when I finish the season… -Yeah, you will go higher.
-Yeah. Yeah, you should be, man. You’re probably
the best left-back in the country, so you should have all the high grades. -In May, I will send you the pics.
-Send me the pic. I’ve got one, too. I don’t know why they gave me one.
I think I was like 99 pace… -Yeah?
-Yeah, yeah, I’m fast. -Yeah.
-Lambo! What? Yo! Like, I’m gone, don’t worry about me.
Just kick the ball, I’ll catch it, yeah? -Defending, I’m not too good.
-Yeah? -My stamina.
-Shooting? Shooting, yeah. My shooting is maybe like 97. -Yeah?
-Yeah, left foot. Right’s not bad. -I’ll pick you for my team.
-Yes. I’ll tell them. I think I need a secret code
to add me to your Ultimate Team. -Yeah?
-I’ll tell you. -I’ll give you the link.
-In secret. My guy! My G! Come on. Love. -Love.
-In a bit. -See you.
-Bless.
