Édouard Mendy says he “didn’t understand” Ballon d’Or omission

In speaking with Téléfoot, Chelsea and former Rennes goalkeeper Édouard Mendy discussed his omission from the Ballon d’Or shortlist at the end of last year, a decision the Senegal international said he “didn’t understand.” Mendy explained: 

“The best response was to stay the course on the pitch to show that my name deserved to be in the top 30. I think being African did me a disservice because I didn’t play in any international competitions last year.”
