FRIENDSHIP: Chelsea GK Mendy Spills The Beans On His Relationship With Kepa

Kepa Arrizabalaga is still the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, having cost Chelsea around £72 million to sign him from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.

Kepa has struggled for form since joining Chelsea, reaching a new low under Frank Lampard before being fired.

Chelsea went on to sign Edouard Mendy as their first-choice goalkeeper, and Kepa was demoted to the number two spot. Mendy has been outstanding in goal for Chelsea despite costing the club only £22 million. The Senegal international, 29, has now revealed that he has a good relationship with Kepa and third-choice goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli.

“My relationship with Kepa is very good, as is my relationship with Marcus [Bettinelli], the third person goalkeeper at Chelsea. We compete with interest,” Mendy told Egyptian outlet El Match TV during the international break.

“The most important thing is that the competition between the players is for the benefit of the team. The titles are for the club and not for the player. “My relationship with my teammates is very good. I respect everyone and there is always a state of friendship between us.” narrated Senegalese 29-year-old.
