Mendy signed for Liverpool on a free transfer from Murcia in July 2008, and was usually deployed in the reserves. In an interview with Liverepool TV, Mendy stated: "I can play right-back, left-back and centre half. I have enjoyed playing at centre half this season and I think I'm good at heading the ball. I like to tackle and always give my best in every game," highlighting his versatility. He also spoke of his delight of playing for Liverpool saying "Liverpool FC is famous throughout the world and it is a real honour to play for this club. It makes me and my family very proud."
