Edouard Mendy Delivers Verdict on Runner-Up Finish for Yashin Trophy Award

Edouard Mendy has delivered his delight at finishing second for the 2021 Yashin Trophy award.

The 29-year-old was beaten to the award by Gianluigi Donnarumma, who was named in the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or award also.

Mendy, despite winning the Champions League and making a joint-record nine clean sheets in Europe, was surprisingly not nominated for the prestigious award.


On Monday evening, Mendy watched the ceremony from Stamford Bridge as he saw himself come second for the Yashin Trophy on a successful night for the club.

"It is an incredible achievement for me and I am really proud to be in Chelsea and to be part of the club," reacted Mendy to the official Chelsea website.

Chelsea were crowned Club of the Year after having 11 nominees across all of the awards on the night
