Edouard Mendy withdraws from Senegal squad

Edouard Mendy

The Senegalese Football Federation has announced the withdrawal from their squad of Edouard Mendy due to injury.

The goalkeeper sustained an injury to his right thigh during training on Wednesday and had a medical examination in a hospital in Rabat, where Senegal are due to play Morocco tonight.

Mendy has since returned to Chelsea where he will undergo further examinations.

The Blues recently signed the stopper from Rennes in a £20m deal, identifying the 28-year-old as a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

However, rather than build on his first two appearances for the club, it appears that Mendy may have to spend some time on the sidelines.

The Senegalese Football Federation revealed on Thursday evening that Chelsea’s new arrival had sustained an issue with his thigh earlier this week.

The severity of the problem is unclear, Mendy is not expected to play any part of the games against Morocco and Mauritania.

Chelsea are next in action when they face Southampton at Stamford Bridge on October 17.
