Thomas Tuchel waxes lyrical about Edouard Mendy’s impact
Thomas Tuchel is full of praise for his number one goalkeeper who has been hugely influential in the matches against Real Madrid and Manchester City in the last week.
“Yes, I think we cannot praise him enough because he is doing fantastically because he comes not only from Ligue 1 to the Premier League but from a club that is not used to playing every three days,” Tuchel said at his press conference ahead of Arsenal.
“Now he is at a club where there’s a match every three or four days. His concentration has remained incredibly high and that’s what you have to deliver as a goalkeeper. With the three goalkeepers, in general, there is a fantastic atmosphere.
“They are all great guys with Willy Caballero and Kepa. All three guys are fantastic guys and they are really examples of sportsmanship and the commitment to team sports. We are very happy to have Edou who is a very calm and humble person.
“This calmness helps him during matches to influence the defenders. It is nice and he is part of an outstanding goalkeeper group. Everybody wishes the best of all three goalkeepers. Without strong guys in the goal, you cannot win games.”
