‘I can win it’ – Chelsea’s Mendy eyes Yashin award after Ballon d’Or snub
The award which was established in 2019 has other candidates like Thibaut Courtois, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Ederson, Kasper Schmeichel, Keylor Navas, Emiliano Martinez, Manuel Neuer, Jan Oblak and Samir Handanovic.
“Of course I think I can win it,” Mendy said as quoted by BBC Sports Africa.
“[If I do win it] I think it would be something I would have deserved. It’s something I have worked hard to get, so it would be a great pride given my journey.

“A few years ago, I was unemployed, without a club and today I find myself named among the best goalkeepers in the world.
“It’s something really positive. It shows me that I’m on the right path and in a good place to win titles and be the best in the world.”
In a recent interview, Mendy admitted he was puzzled to see his name left off the Ballon d’Or shortlist, adding the omission will only inspire him to achieve greater things in the future.
“It’s something that motivates me and pushes me to work. Honestly, I am wondering,” Mendy explained.
“If I had played for France and had taken part in the [European Championships], would we have this debate and this reflection?
“Do I think it’s an injustice? No, I wouldn’t use that word. It’s something that motivates me to go forward, to work, and to perform at the club level and with my country.
“As I said after the game with the national team, it’s the journalists’ freedom of vote and expression, and they vote honourably and conscientiously.”JAMB Result
