Frank Lampard has praised Chelsea’s new goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and has backed the player to push his boundaries at the Bridge.
“It’s about the collective, but he has made a very good start to his career with us,” Lampard said at his pre-match press conference. “He has shown his qualities and brought confidence to those around him.
“When we were in to sign him, Petr Cech was heavily involved. All the feedback, was that he had a great personality in the dressing room, and everything I heard has come true.
“He is very low maintenance, he works hard and he is eager to engage with his teammates. He has smile on his face and it’s a real positive when a player hits the ground running on the pitch, but is a pleasure in the dressing room too. I’m sure there is more to come and I think he can go much further.”
“What I have seen is that he has a massive work ethic to push himself. He has shown that and smiled every day. He has asked relevant questions and engaged with the players around him. I have just sensed that with him. He seems pretty laid back.”
