Chelsea legend Frank Lebeouf has never shyed away from his criticism of Kepa Arrizabalaga over the last two seasons, as the Spaniard struggled to impress in the Premier League.
However, Blues boss Frank Lampard decided to sign a new goalkeeper during the summer transfer window, and Chelsea went for Edouard Mendy from Rennes.
Mendy didn’t take too long to impress at Chelsea, and with just a goal in his six appearances for Chelsea, Chelsea fans have been very impressed with the Senegal international.
Ahead of facing Rennes, Chelsea legend Frank Lebeouf has even thanked the French club for selling Mendy to Chelsea.
“Thanks to Rennes for selling him to us!” Leboeuf said.
“He has made a huge impact. I have followed the guy when he was in Reims and then last season in Rennes, he’s an absolutely fantastic player, and if he’s not the top signing of the new season he’s a huge signing for Chelsea for sure.”
