Video – Ballon d’Or: Edouard Mendy reacts to his absence from the list of nominees

Absent to everyone’s surprise from the list of 30 nominees for the 2021 Golden Ball, the Senegal national team goalkeeper spoke after the Lions’ victory over Namibia about his sidelining by voters for the most prestigious of individual distinctions.

Author of an exceptional 2020-2021 season with Chelsea for his Premier League debut, Edouard Mendy was one of the great architects of his team’s coronation in the Champions League. And since then, the goalkeeper has continued to walk on the water. Named UEFA’s best goalkeeper and in the list of contenders for the winner of the Yachine trophy, he was unfortunately snubbed by France Football voters among the 30 nominees. Asked by us on this subject at the end of Senegal’s match against Namibia this Saturday, the Senegalese international was rather understanding.

« CAs I have, honestly I am already very proud to represent my country among the top 10 goalkeepers in the world. In one year it’s a very good thing, I’m not satisfied with that, I have a lot of ambition but it’s already a good step. Then there will always be debates whether it should be about me or someone else. Here it is, it is the freedom of the votes of journalists and it is their freedom of expression and we must respect that “, says Edouard Mendy.
