Chelsea's current shot stopper, Edouard Mendy, has experienced pathetic moments from the start of his life. The now renowned goalkeeper is a Senegalese. His mother is a Senegalese and his father is from Guinea-Bissau.
For 5 years, Mendy had moved from unemployment to becoming a champions league winner for the Blues.
He was signed by Reims in 2015 and happened to be part of the reserves. At Reims he worked extremely hard.
Then, he was linked with Rennes in 2019 in a bid of 4 million euros and helped them to reach their best in that season.
Petr Cech, being a tactical advisor to Frank Lampard suggested Frank should sign him. Lampard paid heed and brought him to Stanford Bridge for a fee worth £20 million.
He has practically become number one keeper in the goal after Kepa Arrizabalaga failed to impress.
As stated earlier, Edouard's story is a sorrowful one. He had to worked extra hard behind the scenes while trusting in his hard work.
His experience is one to emulate. Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes there has to be a delay to prepare you for the future.
It's important to know that patience and hard work pays.
