Best ever signing in football: Chelsea legend cascarino says Tuchel can win trophies with him

Former Blue Cascarino: ‘Mendy is one of Chelsea’s best-ever signings’

The applause keeps coming for Edouard Mendy, whose tremendous performance against Brentford has caught the eyes of every Chelsea fan across the globe.

Former Blue Tony Cascarino said on talkSPORT: “‘Chelsea dug deep. Had a goalkeeper that performed miracles and you could argue that he’s been one of Chelsea’s best ever signings.

“He cost £17 million from Rennes, came in and seemed to breeze into the team. Showed no signs of concerns of nerves.

“His performance made you think, ‘Wow’.

“Whoever made the decision, I suspect it was Petr Cech because he was at Rennes as a goalkeeper and will know a lot of people at that football club, and was probably pivotal in that move to get him for Chelsea.”

Since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival in January, no goalkeeper across Europe’s top 5 leagues has conceded fewer goals or kept more clean sheets than Mendy.

The shot-stopper also won the UEFA Men’s best goalkeeper award. For sure, it’s hard to argue against Cascarino’s claim here.
