Manchester City's Benjamin Mendy celebrates Marseille win in Europa League

He may be a Manchester City player these days but Benjamin Mendy still spent his Thursday night roaring on former club Marseille in the Europa League.

The Ligue 1 side overturned a 1-0 deficit from the first leg of their quarterfinal against RB Leipzig in stunning fashion, rampaging to a thrilling 5-2 victory at the Stade Velodrome.

Just like the rest of the L'OM fans around the world, Mendy was unable to contain his joy after the final whistle.

Marseille's win must have come as a welcome tonic for Mendy, who saw his City team get knocked out of the Champions League by Liverpool a couple of days ago.

Still, the French full-back found time to congratulate the Reds on Twitter and wish them well with the rest of the tournament.

Seems like a good egg, does Ben.
