shone in the games he played for Chelsea and also recorded several clean sheets.
is very pleased with the performance of his French goalkeeper and hopes that he can continue this good performance.
“I’ve been really pleased. It’s not easy and he’s made it look easy, which is the difficult thing,”
“When you come from another league there are of course differences in the Premier League – the physical nature, the speed of the league – and I think it is unique in those terms.
“For a goalkeeper that has got such a spotlight on him and is having to face these differences and make relationships with the team around him, he has done it very seamlessly.
“He has settled off the pitch and is performing on the pitch, you can’t ask any more than that, and he is doing it with a smile on his face and with a really great attitude. So I’m really pleased, it’s a good start for him in a Chelsea shirt. Long may that continue.”
admits that the spirit and confidence that exists in the goal and in Mendy has spread throughout the team:
“It helps. Confidence is something that you have to build through a squad, bit by bit, from front to back,”
“But with a goalkeeper, when you are talking about defensively and the amount of pressure that you come under in the Premier League, there aren’t many games when you will have no problems and no issues. You need to build confidence.
“We have had some clean sheets lately and individuals should take a lot of credit for that, but also collectively that confidence needs to build and it needs to continue.”
