Chelsea signed Edouard Mendy from Rennes back in September, for the sum of £22m, and the Senegal international has had a massive impact at the club already.
Despite hailing from a French speaking nation, Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has revealed his surprise that Mendy can already speak good English.
Speaking to the official Chelsea website, Zouma said: “Edouard is a very nice guy and he has good English already – I don’t where he practised that, but he’s got it!
“I don’t even have to translate things for him now, but on the pitch we can speak both English and French.”
Zouma also revealed that Mendy has settled in well at the club and is very much loved by his teammates.
Zouma continued: “I try to help him [Mendy] but you can see he has settled here very well already, everyone likes him, and he’s doing a good job at the minute, so I’m very happy for him.”
