Premier League

Chelsea football club has a new hero

Edouard Mendy was signed by Chelsea as a last option after they had failed to secure the signing of Ajax's Onana. It has never been easy to come in as an option and make yourself a name among the players and fans and Mendy has just done that. 

The 29 year old Senegalese Custodian who was signed from Reims has become a fan favourite with his stellar performances game in game out, taking on the number one role from Kepa Arrizabalanga as a result.

His heroic performances against Brentford who have been recently promoted to Premier league recently and have pulled up surprise performances against Arsenal and Liverpool will go down as most of the fan's favourite.

When asked about his secret he had this to say according to Chelsea fc's official website statement

“I am happy with how I performed,”. “It’s down to hard work. I prepared during the week with my teammates and coaches to help the team, and I was able to do that.We knew we were coming up against a very difficult team. They have shown that since they got promoted to the Premier League, especially at home against Arsenal and Liverpool. That makes it a really good result.

“It was very hard. There was so much intensity in the game, and a great atmosphere. We had to suffer and we suffered together. We passed the hurdle together. It’s a positive and now we need to build on this momentum in the Champions League.”

He was hailed by teammates Ben chillwell who played down his goal and said Mendy was responsible for their win. Antonio Rudiger in his tweet was surprised at how Mendy didn't make the Ballon d'or shortlist.
