Edouard Mendy admits he still can’t believe he plays for a club like Chelsea after making that big move to the Premier League
The new fan-favourite goalie, who has kept two clean sheets in as many games, managed to secure a transfer move to Stamford Bridge in the summer after being watched by the club for a number of months.
And Mendy has opened up and admitted that he still can’t believe he plays for a club like Chelsea, especially after he nearly quit football a few years ago, he beamed: “If someone had said to me then I would end up at Chelsea, I would not have bothered to look at or listen to them.
“It was really very difficult because on one hand you have the anger of finding yourself without a club because of the agent I was with.
“But also the disappointment of not being able to play at the weekend, not being able to do what I love.
“That is really hard, a year is a very long time for a footballer.
“Fortunately I could always count on my family and they helped me through that and to bounce back and get to where I am today.”
Mendy has looked very impressive in the two games that he has played for us and looks like he will be a very good signing for the club, so fans will surely love this, as the lad feels lucky to be at the club.
He will develop alot while he is here, and if he can keep putting in the kind of performances that he has been, then maybe he can be considered as one of the very best stoppers in the Premier league.
