Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy has come out to say that Riyad Mahrez is a potential threat for the club in the UCL final. He recently revealed that Mahrez is definitely one of the best African players around, so his presence will be felt.
According to him, Riyad doesn’t need any introduction and he has played at a very high level for several years, so Chelsea defenders must always be at alert about him.
He added that Manchester City definitely deserved this year’s league title because they were very consistent throughout the season.
His words, “I don’t think Riyad needs any introduction, he is one of the best African players and he has played at a very high level for several years.”
“He’s also had a complicated journey and he really didn’t give up and he deserves everything that is happening to him.”
“He will be one of his side’s biggest threats – one of Manchester City’s assets.”
“This team [Manchester City] deserved this year’s league title, they were very good and very consistent throughout the year,”
“They deserve their title and there’s no arguing about that but now we are playing a final and it’s different. We’ll play for at least 90 minutes. And we will do everything to get this title.”
On his career, “When I found myself unemployed, it was very difficult,”
“It lasted about a year and there were a lot of moments of doubt and a lot of times when you want to stop, but with the support of the family and then the faith in yourself, you manage to push your limits.”
“I really took this ordeal in the best possible way to be able to overcome it. A year without a club is a very long time. Training but not being able to play on weekends. That was something very difficult. I couldn’t even watch a football match anymore because it was so hard for me.”
“And supporting yourself and your family is very complicated. Luckily there was my sister who lives in London, my big brother, my two little brothers, my partner of course, and without forgetting my parents.”
“They were a great support to me. My family has always supported me, they were more than important, because I think without them, I would have decided to quit.”
