Six years ago Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was playing third-tier football for Cherbourg. The story of the Senegal international is a true story of grass to grace, and the 28-year-old can’t believe how far he has come, that he’s now a Chelsea goalkeeper.

Speaking about his rise to the top, Mendy said in an interview with Chelsea TV: “When this story is discussed, then I realise the path I have been on in my career.

“It’s true that it’s incredible. People say hard work pays off, and it does. I have worked very hard; I haven’t taken anything for granted. I was at Marseille, and then Reims, and then Rennes, and now Chelsea.

“It’s been a constant progression, and now I am ready to continue on that upward path.”

Mendy has now revealed that his ultimate goal is to win the league with Chelsea.

He said: “I want to adapt to this league, continue my progression that has been constant for a number of years, and to win. At a club like Chelsea, you have to win.”
