Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to deliver an update on Edouard Mendy’s injury. He recently revealed that the Blues’ first-choice goalkeeper is carrying a very painful knock.
According to him, his goalie got injured from the last-minute kick against Zenit in the UCL and he is still feeling the pain.
Tuchel added that Mendy hasn’t been feeling comfortable to fight at set-pieces or corners, so he’ll need time to recover.
His words, “We tried throughout the week and on Saturday in training it was so-so.”
“It comes from the last-minute kick against Zenit in the Champions League.”
“It is very painful and he did not feel 100 per cent comfortable going for a full stretch or to land on it. He didn’t feel comfortable to fight at set-pieces or corners.”
“So we decided to go with 100 per cent and that was Kepa and have Edou with us to be supportive and have good energy.”
“I’m happy Kepa played a crucial role and kept a clean sheet. This is what he deserves and I am happy that he could.”
