The manager played a crucial role in helping the Blues win the Uefa Champions League
Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has shared his gratitude to teammates and the club as a whole after winning Europe’s Goalkeeper of the Year award.
The Senegal striker helped the Blues win the Uefa Champions League due to his world-class saves. West Londoners defeated Manchester City with a lone goal of winning the annual competition.
The custodian has now taken his account on social media to appreciate all those who made it possible, while praising his teammates who also won awards in their respective categories.
“I have a very special feeling … I am proud and honored to win this award,” Mendy wrote.
“I want to share it with all my teammates, all the staff, my coach, all the people who work behind the scenes to make the club grow, and with my family.
“Congratulations to Jorginho for winning the award for best player, to N’Golo Kante for being the best midfielder of the season, and congratulations to the coach, Thomas Tuchel, for being selected as the best in his category.
“Now it’s about continuing to work hard, be consistent and win more titles.”
