The goalkeeper is described as intelligent and principled by those who know him and has fought his way up the ranks to earn a shot at Stamford Bridge
In the space of six years, Edouard Mendy has gone from being unemployed to potentially becoming Chelsea’s No.1 goalkeeper. At the heart of the story is an optimist, with a world-class sporting mentality.
Coach Frank Lampard signed Mendy to compete with club-record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has badly struggled for form, and on the recommendation of transfer advisor and club legend Petr Cech. Like Cech, Mendy comes from Rennes with something to prove.
