Mendy’s fortunes only changed when Marseille signed him in 2015 following a trial
Edouard Mendy is relishing the chance to showcase his talent at Chelsea but the Senegal keeper says he almost gave up football six years ago after his departure from Cherbourg left him without a club and drawing unemployment benefit.
Mendy’s fortunes only changed when Marseille signed him in 2015 following a trial and the 28-year old featured in their “B” team before having spells at Reims and Rennes.
He secured a move to Chelsea last month on a five-year deal.
The Senegal international said Chelsea’s technical advisor Petr Cech played a big role in securing his move to London.
