Minto has positive outlook on Edouard Mendy

Scott Minto declares that Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has changed into “the star signing” for Frank Lampard. During the summer, Chelsea have invested a lot of money in all aspects of the field.

Within the last transfer window, Roman Abramovich disintegrated the chequebook again at Stamford Bridge.

 Lampard reinforced his ranks , with big money wasted on the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech.

Mendy was the last in west London, with the 28-year-old snatched from Ligue 1 outfit Rennes.

Minto was surprised that how long it took Chelsea to come to a new No.1 . Clearly, for specific time that £71 million ($93m) man Kepa Arrizabalaga did not have the responsibility.

Mendy has  proven that he can be a suitable choice . He was able to become

a prominent figure

for Premier League title hopefuls.

Former Blues defender Minto told talkSPORT : “I’m surprised it took this long to get Edouard Mendy in – only the hierarchy at Chelsea know why.”

“Even when Kepa has had chances this season, I think he has looked shaky and he has made mistakes.”

“I can tell you as a full-back that when you have got a really strong, confident goalkeeper who will come out and make good saves, it gives you confidence yourself.”

“I would say so far, and I love the look of Ziyech as well, that Edouard Mendy – with five clean sheets in six games – has been

the star signing at the moment


“The confidence he gives is what Chelsea needed. They needed clean sheets, that is what they are getting at the moment, and now they can concentrate on going forward because they have got so much talent there.”
