Chelsea signed Mendy to improve the team at the back. Kepa which was the most expensive goalkeeper in the world now sits on the bench.

According to ex-Blues keeper

Mark Schwarzer

,<a href="https://sportmob.com/en/player/5c4051d246b6a23de80015b4/petr-čech">

Petr Cech

was

Chelsea

's best keeper in training before the arrival of

Mendy

Cech

retired in 2019 after his shocking transfer from the Blues of London to

Arsenal

.

It was announced that Petr Cech was included in the Premier League squad of Chelsea in case problems related to Covin-19 happened. The 38-year-old was the fourth goalkeeper in the squad, joining

Mendy

Kepa Arrizabalaga

, and

Willy Caballero

.

“From my understanding, he was better than the

Chelsea

keepers – but this was before Mendy arrived at the club," Schwarzer told Optus Sport. "He was performing and training better than the Chelsea keepers."

“He just was saying that he felt so good. He said had he known that after having time off he would have felt so good, he would have only had six months off and wouldn’t have retired," Schwarzer said.

"He actually believes he’s fit enough and strong enough and good enough still to play in the

Premier League

.

"I know he’s kicking the ball further than he did towards the end of his career, because the injuries he had, the problems he had with his ankle, his calf, they were hindering his kicking game.

"So apparently he has no problems with that at all anymore. He’s kicking the ball as far as he [ever] did.”
