Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has surprisingly missed out on the 2021 Lev Yashin award for best goalkeeper to PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma despite having more clean sheets and winning the Champions League.

Donnarumma won the award after recording 15 clean sheets in 48 outings across all competitions for Milan as they finished second in Serie A last term and reached the latter stages of the Europa League. He was also part of Italy’s success in the European Championship.

Meanwhile, Chelsea goalkeeper Mendy kept 25 clean sheets for the Blues in the Champions League and Premier League, as the Blues won the Champions League.

There’s definitely an agenda against Mendy as he was the best goalkeeper in Europe in 2021.
