With a smile, Edouard Mendy designates the best current African goalkeeper: « It’s him! »
From Rennes, Edourad Mendy is on another planet. The Senegalese international goalkeeper has made enormous progress and has shown all his talent at Chelsea. With the Blues, he won almost everything, the Champions League, the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup, the FIFA best goalkeeper trophy. And in selection, he allowed Senegal to rise to the roof of Africa by repelling two Penalties in the CAN final. Inevitably, he is the best African goalkeeper currently.
In an interview with Carré, a media specializing in interviews, Edouard Mendy confessed half-word, that he was really the best African currently as a goalkeeper. Of course, the former Phocaean winked at André Onana (Inter Milan) and Yassine Bounou of FC Seville.
“The best current African goalkeeper? Hahahahaha! In Senegal, we are well supplied. But afterwards, to be a little broader, we see André Onana of course who was at a very good level at Ajax (from Amsterdam). There is Seny Dieng who is also doing a very good job with QPR and who is aiming for the rise and of course Yassine Bounou (Bono) who is really one of the best goalkeepers in Europe. What he is doing with Sevilla is really very beautiful and for African football, it is magnificent. he said with a smile.
You will understand, Edouard Mendy sees himself as the best African goalkeeper of the moment. And he’s probably not wrong considering all he has already achieved with the Chelsea Blues and Senegal.
