UEFA Champions League

African Top Goalkeeper Snubbed For This Award. Top Footballers React.

Liverpool star Sadio Mane has criticised France Football's decision to avoid a specific African star with regard to the 30-man 2021 Ballon d'Or candidates waitlist. 

The Reds' No. 10, who was on South African shores on Tuesday after Senegal's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Namibia was moved to Johannesburg's Orlando Stadium, has now depicted Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy's scorn during the current year's Ballon d'Or as "inadmissible". 

Mendy has won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, just as the UEFA Men's Goalkeeper of the Year grant in 2021. However, this was apparently insufficient to warrant him a Ballon d'Or selection, with Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma the main shot-plug to make the waitlist. 

Mane's public partner Kalidou Koulibaly additionally communicated his failure over the choice, guaranteeing that the previous Rennes 'attendant, who kept nine clean sheets in 12 Champions League coordinates with last season, had the right to be in with a yell.
