The Blues goalkeeper works with two proven performers on a daily basis and expects them to perform at their peak next season
Edouard Mendy believes Chelsea will see “the best of” Timo Werner and Kai Havertz from next season after the German forwards endured testing debut campaigns at Stamford Bridge.
Much was expected of two big-money additions when they made their way to west London from RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen during the summer of 2020, but neither has lived up to their price tag.
There have been flashes of brilliance and the odd cause for optimism, but it may be that consistency proves elusive until 2021-22.
Chelsea goalkeeper Mendy told the club’s official website: “They are really good players. They are young players and it is the first time that they have moved to another country.
“I think they needed a couple of months to adjust and understand the Premier League but I see them every day and I know how good they are. I am happy for them. They showed their qualities on the pitch.
“Next season, 100 per cent, we will see the best of Timo and Kai. Even this year, we have enjoyed their good levels of performance and they are important for us.”
