Edouard Mendy’s team mates Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, and Romelu Lukaku all made the 30 man shortlist with his name missing after he had a very god first campaign with Chelsea wining the Champions league and keeping a record 9 clean sheets.

Speaking to Canal+ (via Wiw Sport), Mendy said: “It’s something that motivates me and pushes me to work. Honestly, I am wondering. 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 be performant at club level and with my country, and 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.”
