After the game, the Blues fans got a new piece of good news. Coach Frank Lampard personally confirmed that Rennes goalkeeper Mendy has completed the medical examination and will officially announce his joining Chelsea tomorrow.
This is a good exercise for him. Through this game, he can understand more clearly how we want him to do without the ball, hope he has the freedom when he has the ball, and he and Abraham's The cooperation is very good. This is the first of many great nights he has been here.
I am very satisfied with the two forwards who played tonight, and I am very happy to have so many options on the front this season.
This made us feel excited. He only practiced with us for a week, but he brought a kind of leadership authority to the team. Although he does not speak English yet, this is not a big problem.
This is just a choice I made, don't read too much about it.
I think he played very well. He looks sharp and works very hard without the ball. I am very satisfied with him.
