Edouard Mendy helped the Chelsea to win the Uefa Champions League last season, and has established himself as arguably Africa’s best goalkeeper.
Mendy has thanked all those involved to ensure his “incredible year” ends on a high.
The 29-year-old won the Best African International Award from the Ghana Football Awards Board in a ceremony held on Saturday night.
The West African has promised to give his best to ensure he does not disappoint in the new campaign.
“Hi everyone, I am happy and grateful to receive this award from the Ghana Football Awards Board,” Mendy said in a short video obtained by Goal.
“It has been an incredible year for me and winning the Champions League remains one of the best achievements in my life. I thank the Ghanaians and all Africans across the world for their support and prayer.
“I appreciate the recognition as the best African international player and promise to do more to make Africa proud, thank you.”
The Senegal number one helped the Blues to win the Uefa Champions League trophy after a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the final.
The Senegal shot-stopper played 31 league matches and 12 Champions League games which clearly confirmed his position as Chelsea’s number one ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
