Mendy qualified for the World Cup but couldn't help Chelsea in the Premier League — Tuchel speaks following Brentford's defeat
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has stated that goalkeeper Edouard Mendy qualified for the 2022 World Cup with Senegal, but that he was unable to help the Blues in their 4-1 Premier League defeat to Brentford on Saturday.
Brentford won 3-0 over Chelsea thanks to a brace from Vitaly Janelt and goals from Christian Eriksen and Yoane Wissa.
Tuchel's team did score at Stamford Bridge, thanks to Antonio Rudiger.
Chelsea's meeting against Brentford was an unthankful game for Mendy during his post-match press conference.
Actually, I'll have to watch it again, "he added. For a goalie, I believe it is a thankless game. In addition, he has a lot to think about.
That is why he plays these tight matches—a repetition of the African Cup final in order to qualify for the Qatar World Cup. He's in the middle of another penalty shootout, and he's feeling it. He is a member of the team, but he was unable to assist us like he did in the first encounter. "
