Edouard Mendy, the goalkeeper for Chelsea, has been praised by manager Graham Potter, who emphasized that the Senegalese is a top professional, honest, and very supportive.
On Wednesday night in the Champions League match between Chelsea and Dinamo Zagreb, Mendy is anticipated to make his first start since early September.
The goalkeeper participated for 45 minutes in Chelsea's 4-1 Premier League loss to Brighton the previous weekend.
Since Potter was hired to take over for the fired Thomas Tuchel in early September, the 30-year-old is now set to start his first game under Potter.
Asked about Mendy at his pre-match news conference on Tuesday, Potter said: “He’s been great, a top professional, very supportive." I’ve had some good chats with him.
“He was injured when we first arrived, so Kepa played, and Kepa did well." He’s honest and professional enough to know sometimes you have to be patient, work hard, and support the team, which is what he did. We can’t ask anymore.
“He’s made sure he’s ready, he’s trained well, and he’s kept his standards high." Now he has an opportunity. "It's unfortunate for Kepa that it’s come around like that, but that’s football.”
