Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy has come out to say that he feared the club wouldn’t sign him. He recently revealed that he felt the Blues will prefer an alternative option when the club was searching for a new goalie.
According to him, he really saw Chelsea as a huge club before his arrival but Petr Cech’s intervention made him realize that the interest was very real.
He added that Cech told him that he was the only option Chelsea wanted in goal and that gave him the confidence to make the move.
His words, “I often spoke to [my agent] who told me about Chelsea’s interest.”
“I tried not to think about it because Chelsea are a pretty big deal and I’d come a really long way, but when the phone conversations started escalating, I realised that there was real interest from Chelsea and that I had to go for it.”
“I told myself that Chelsea might sign another goalkeeper, but Petr called me. He said: ‘Listen, only one goalkeeper is going to sign for the club, and it will be you. I only want you’.”
“When a keeper like Petr, with the career he had and being the Chelsea legend he is, tells you that, it calms you down a bit.”
“Am I one of the best goalkeepers in the world? I couldn’t tell you, but for me the most important thing is to be the best for my team.”
“Being the best for my club means being the best every day and being the best I can on the pitch, helping my team to win trophies.”
“I’ve progressed every year, and I did last year too, and that’s something I want to do every year. It’s something I want all the time.”
