Thiago Silva slams Edouard Mendy’s Ballon d’Or snub after man of the match performance against Brentford

Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva has slammed the decision to snub Edouard Mendy for this year’s Ballon d’Or following his man of the match performance against Brentford on Saturday.

Mendy produced several brilliant saves to secure Chelsea’s 1-0 victory at Brentford.

The clean sheet against Brentford is Mendy’s 20th clean sheet in 38 Premier League games for Chelsea and despite his brilliant performances for the Blues, Mendy failed to make the 30-man shortlist for this year’s Ballon d’Or award.

Sharing a post from Chelsea’s Instagram page after Mendy’s Man of the Match display, the Brazilian centre-back wrote: “He won the Champions League as one of the best goalkeepers?? Left off the list for the Ballon d’Or?”

What do you think about the decision to omit Mendy from the Ballon d’Or 30-man shortlist?
