Frank Lampard believes that new goalkeeper signing Edouard Mendy will continue to impress.
The 28 year old has performed brilliantly in the last few matches since he moved from Rennes, making important saves – and saving Chelsea’s goalkeeping situation as a Kepa back up.
However, Lampard is confident that Mendy will deliver more than he is now.
“I am sure he will improve as it is really early days for him at the club he is settling in, still to a degree,” he told media per the Chelsea website.
“I am very confident in him and he has shown great qualities so far and I think there is a lot more to come, with his attitude which is key.
“I have seen how he wants to work, how he wants to be and the humility in him – I think he can go much further in many departments.
“What I have seen in a short period of time with Edouard is a player that has a massive work ethic to train and push himself every day.
“It seems his personality is pretty laid back with a tough edge when it comes to work.
“He has shown his qualities that we brought him into the club for.
“All the feedback was he had a great personality, a strong personality in the dressing room, and everything I heard, all those positives, came true. It seems his personality is pretty laid-back with a tough edge when it comes to work.
“He is very low maintenance, he works hard, he wants to work more, and he is eager to engage with his team-mates and myself.
“He has a smile on his face so it’s a real positive when you have a player that comes in and hits the ground running on the pitch and in the dressing room.”
