Chelsea couldn’t catch a break with continuous goalkeeper issues. They just flushed out over $28 million ( 22 GBP) to sign Mendy and he is injured after just 2 games. Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is from Senegal, he was on international duty with his team when he got injured and he may be out for a while.
As result, Kepa Arrizabalaga may be back on the post for Chelsea. Kepa Arrizabalaga‘s transfer fee and processing cost Chelsea about €80m, but his production has lagged a lot. And this forced Chelsea to spend new money on Edouard Mendy. Mendy has only featured in two games and now he’ll be sidelined due to injury.
Chelsea will play against Southampton on October 17 and Mendy may not play in that match.
The Senegalese Football Federation confirmed the news via an official statement, which reads: “The Senegalese Football Federation announces the goalkeeper of the National Selection Edouard Mendy sustained an injury to the right thigh that occurred during the training session on Wednesday, October 07, 2020, and has undergone a medical examination at the hospital in Rabat.
“Edouard Mendy has also left the group this afternoon to return to his Club (Chelsea) where he will undergo further examinations.
“The Senegalese Football Federation wishes him a speedy recovery.
“He will be replaced by the young goalkeeper of the U20 national team, Boubacar Fall, who was regrouping in Toubab Dialao and who moved to Rabat in the early evening.”
