Unacceptable’: Sadio Mane slams France Football for leaving Edouard Mendy off Ballon d’Or shortlist

Five Chelsea players have been included in a 30-man shortlist for this year’s Ballon d’Or.

However, that list does not include Edouard Mendy who was previously named UEFA’s Goalkeeper of the Year.

Edouard’s teammate in the Senegal national team Sadio Mane is having none of it.

“It is unacceptable,” the Liverpool forward said, as quoted by Metro.

“I do not understand, these are things to deplore.”

Given Mendy’s role in winning the Champions League, this is indeed a bizarre decision.

At least, France Football nominated him for the Yachine Trophy to the best goalkeeper of the year – and Edou has every chance to succeed.
