In addition to being teammates in selection, Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibay will now share the same club. A thing that greatly delights the Senegalese keeper of the Chelsea Blues.
After Edouard Mendy, a new Senegalese international lands at Chelsea Blues, Kalidou Koulibaby. The captain of the Teranga Lions has officially joined the London club this Saturday for four seasons, until June 2026. At the Blues, the former Napoli defender will play alongside his compatriot Edouard Mendy. The former goalkeeper of Stade Rennais was quick to react on the arrival of his captain in the national team.
"I know Kalidou for a while now. He was the first to welcome me to the national team, so we were in the same room at the beginning, when I met him for the first time, when I received my first call-up, so the sensations were incredible," said first Edouard Mendy in comments reported on the club website.
"If you talk about his qualities on the field, I think I will let people and Chelsea fans see this player and I hope they enjoy watching him," continued the African champion. He is a top player, as everyone knows, but he is a good person, and that's why in the dressing room he will be a very good recruit."
For Edu, there is no doubt possible: Kalidou Koulibaly will bring a lot to the Chelsea Blues. "He is someone who likes to have responsibilities. But he can also joke with everyone, so we need this kind of person. And I think everyone will be happy with him and what they will see," concluded the Chelsea shot stopper .
