The debate at Chelsea is over. Edouard Mendy was recognized by Frank Lampard as starting goalkeeper after much debate under the sticks, so Kepa Arrizabalaga, the most expensive goalkeeper in history, has become a second option.
Despite these bad moments, the Senegalese commented on the Spanish the message he gave him upon arrival, when he stole the starting position. “Before my first match he wished me good luck”Said Mendy, who made clear the good atmosphere that prevails among Chelsea’s goalkeepers.
“You never stop if you think you see things that I might have missed, just like Caballero. It’s great that we are a united group, the three of us. It’s good for us and for the rest of the team, ”insisted the former Rennes player, with good performances since his arrival.
“I think everyone who knows and follows football could see that there was a unique situation here regarding goalkeepers, but it was not something that influenced my decision to come to Chelsea. I was concentrating on what Lampard had told me about coming here. He, like the club, assured me this would be the best club to continue developing as a player. I focus on that ”, he clarified Mendy
