Chelsea No.1 Edouard Mendy set 2 new record as chelsea win champions league final

Published

Chelsea secured their first piece of silverware under head coach Thomas Tuchel on Saturday evening, defeating Manchester City 1-0 in the final of the UEFA Champions League at the Estadio do Dragao.

After getting the better of Real Madrid at the semi-final stage, Chelsea completed the most memorable of journeys in style thanks to Kai Havertz’s first half goal.

When the team news was confirmed, Chelsea shot-stopper Edouard Mendy must have been fearing the worst.

However, aside from being called into action to make one or two routine stops, the Senegalese international, who joined the Blues from French outfit Rennes last September, had a relatively easy night’s work.

And the latest clean sheet to his collection, which was his 25th of the season, saw him break two Champions League records.

That is because the former Rennes star, who has adapted well to life in England this season, became the first goalkeeper in Champions League history to keep nine clean sheets in their debut season in the competition.

Mendy featured in 12 of the Blues’ 13 Champions League matches this season, conceding just three goals.

As well as that, Mendy also became the first shot-stopper since Marc-Andre ter Stegen in 2015 to win the Champions League in their debut campaign in the competition.

Mendy has become an instant hit with the Chelsea supporters and is adored by those who work with him at Stamford Bridge, including former Blues No.1 Petr Cech, who waxed lyrical about the 29-year-old prior to the semi-final second-leg win over Real Madrid.

Cech said: “With Edouard Mendy behind, he’s been absolutely outstanding so far, so altogether it came to the point where the team is defending well and don’t give away many chances.
