Thiago Silva shares frustration over Mendy being left out of Ballon d’Or nominees list
Edouard Mendy was unbeatable last night in the win against Brentford, putting up one of the best performances we have seen from a goalkeeper this year.
After the game, Antonio Rudiger said that he could not understand why his teammate was excluded from the 30-man Ballon d’Or shortlist.
Thiago Silva had the same reaction. The centre-back, who was absent from the game due to quarantine rules, shared a story on his Instagram:
The caption reads: “He won the Champions League being one of the best goalkeepers and…? Left off the list for the Ballon d’Or? 🤔🤔”
Well, in our mind there is no doubt that Mendy has been the world’s best keeper since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival in January.
Hopefully, he will get his due credit soon with performances like these.
