sport news Benjamin Mendy slammed by Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy was criticised on Saturday night following comments he made on social media about Lewis Dunk's own goal.

Mendy, who missed City's 2-0 away win over Brighton in the Premier League, used Twitter to poke fun at Dunk whose header gave the visitors a two-goal advantage.

'Bullet header,' Mendy tweeted following his goal that was scored 15 minutes before time.

Mendy later issued an explanation, suggesting it was nothing more than 'banter'.

'Sorry to the few people who got offended... was just banter nothing personal. Enjoy your night everyone. #CmonCity,' he tweeted.

But that didn't wash with BT Sport pundits Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.
