3 reasons Mendy should have won Yashin award for best goalkeeper instead of Donnarumma {Opinion}

Gianluigi Donnarumma of Paris Saint-Germain and Italy's national team defeated Chelsea number one goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and other nominees to win the Yashin award for best goalkeeper in 2021.

Edouard Mendy has been superb for both club and country since the start of last season, and his excellent performance has resulted in many clean sheets and the lifting of two titles.

Despite his outstanding performance in 2021, Edouard Mendy was unable to win the best goalkeeper of the year award.

Here are 3 reasons why Edouard Mendy, not Gianluigi Donnarumma, should have won the Yashin award for best goalkeeper.

He won the UEFA Champions League in 2020/2021.

Last season, the 29-year-old was outstanding for Chelsea football club, and his outstanding performance helped them win the UEFA Champions League title. (He had 9 clean sheets and only allowed 3 goals.)

He is the winner of the UEFA Super Cup

The Senegal national team star was also outstanding for Chelsea football club, assisting them in defeating Villarreal football club to win the UEFA Super Cup in August.

Edouard Mendy's excellent performance for Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea football club helped him win the UEFA Champions League goalkeeper of the season, and this was supposed to have helped him win the goalkeeper of the year award instead of Gianluigi Donnarumma.

He's one of Europe's best goalkeepers right now.

Edouard Mendy has also performed admirably for Chelsea this season, appearing in 50 games, keeping 29 clean sheets, and conceding only 27 goals.
