Senegal international and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has witnessed growth in his career since moving to Stamford Bridge.
Mendy lifted both the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2021/22 to add to the Champions League winners’ medal he received in his debut season in west London.
The Blues goalie has also been impressive for his home country Senegal who were crowned champions of Africa for the first time in the country’s history this year.
Speaking in an exclusive ‘In My Own Words’ video interview, Mendy revealed that the winning feeling is something he would love to get used to.
‘I’ve also experienced some absolutely joyous moments – with AFCON, the Champions League and the Super Cup, winning trophies – when you win them it becomes an addiction. When you live your life in competition, you always want to be in the final to win,’ says Mendy.
‘I’ve been lucky enough to experience that at club level and with my national team who won AFCON for the first time in our history. So, it’s a mix of a lot of emotions but enormously positive ones which brings huge amounts of pride to my family. And I’m proud to see them so happy.’
