Walker then posted a mock-up picture of the famous ‘Where’s Wally’ book, instead replacing Wally with Mendy.
Guardiola was left nonplussed on Friday, saying: ‘I don’t know. I have to understand Instagram. Really I don’t know. Yesterday he’s in Barcelona. Hong Kong, definitely not.
‘He’s injured, it’s not easy – meniscus. He needs to re-adapt. He has to handle the effort we are putting on him – he has to be careful.’
Mendy complimented Walker by telling him he is better at photoshop than football
