Competition record & first ever: 2 brilliant stats that explain Mendy’s Goalkeeper of the Year award

Edouard Mendy was named UEFA’s Goalkeeper of the Year following a stellar Champions League campaign last season from the Senegalese.

This was a result of a campaign that saw Mendy keep 9 clean sheets, a record-matching number in the history of the competition.

Mendy also became the first African goalkeeper ever to keep a clean sheet in the final of the Champions League.

His elite shot-stopping ability and commanding presence of the box have both resulted in his meteoric rise to the top and this award feels like the first of many for the big Chelsea goalkeeper.
