Petr Cech convinced Edouard Mendy will keep getting better at Chelsea.
Edouard Mendy made a move to Chelsea from Rennes in a £22 million deal and has quickly secured the role of the first-choice goalkeeper replacing Kepa Arrizabalaga.
So far, Mendy has secured five clean sheets in a row for the Blues.
Petr Cech’s recommendation of Mendy proved to be really beneficial for the Blues as he had an impressive start at Stamford Bridge.

‘We had to make sure it was someone everyone agreed on, not just me,’ Cech told Telefoot.
‘It had to be the club, and especially the manager, who had to be comfortable with the choice. We had a list of goalkeepers.
‘We presented it all to Frank Lampard. We spoke with the scouts, we shared information. We gave the pros and cons of each goalkeeper.
‘In the end, my knowledge of Edouard over the last three years helped.
‘I think he’s a goalkeeper who can still improve, with his work, professionalism and desire to be better every day.
‘I’m convinced he’ll improve more, and these aren’t the best performances you’ll see from Edouard Mendy.’
