Yachine Trophy: Edouard Mendy not resentful
Second in the Yachine Trophy for the best goalkeeper of the year, Edouard Mendy spoke on his Instagram account.
Since arriving at Chelsea, Edouard Mendy is undoubtedly one of the best goalies in the world. In 62 games, he achieved 36 cleansheets and conceded only 36 goals. Nominated for the Yachine Trophy, rewarding the best goalkeeper of the year, the Senegalese international (14 caps) was not finally rewarded, since he is the goalkeeper of the PSG Gianluigi Donnarumma who won the second edition, succeeding Alisson becker.
A duel for two
The two goalkeepers both had strong arguments: the Italian won Euro 2020 with his selection and was voted best player of the tournament, while the former Rennais won the Champions League with Chelsea and above all ended the year with 28 out of 50 games without conceding a goal. Suffice to say that it was difficult to separate these two exceptional goalkeepers.
The second place of the goalkeeper of the Blues caused a lot of reaction, especially on social networks, where most believe he deserved to win. Mendy himself reacted to the ceremony, not to complain about the outcome, but to thank everyone who sent him messages of support. “Tonight I feel blessed and grateful. Thanks to all your posts around the world and your endless support. Thank you ! “, we could read on his Instagram account Monday evening after the awards ceremony.
A great humility of the one who still makes a big start to the season, being a major asset for Chelsea in the league, leader with only 5 goals conceded in 13 games.
