Petr Cech has outlined Edouard Mendy’s aerial ability as he sees the goalkeeper’s arrival as moving Chelsea closer to winning titles again.
The Blues’ former goalkeeper turned technical and performance adviser played a big role in identifying the 28-year-old as a target, as previously mentioned by Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia. Cech has kept track of Mendy’s progress for the past three years and, in a recent interview with the club, picked out a few things Mendy could offer.
He told Chelsea’s official website: “He [Mendy] is a very all-round goalkeeper. He is very good with his feet. He has all the range of distribution, from long to short.
“And, in the last two years if you watch European football, the way he dominates crossing situations and high balls in the area is unlike anybody else.
“He uses his size and has great timing to read the trajectory of the ball. He is strong at high balls and commanding the area, and he uses his size very well for saves.
“He will be another piece for the puzzle we’re trying to complete to have a really competitive team to challenge for the highest positions and titles, because Chelsea is all about that.”
