Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has spoken about Edouard Mendy’s shaky form this season.

Mendy was in superb form for Chelsea two seasons ago as the Blues won the Champions League.

However, the Senegal international has been full of mistakes this season, and has had a very poor start to the season.

Rio Ferdinand has backed Mendy to regain the form that saw him help Chelsea win the Champions League, or else it could be a problem for Chelsea this season.

Ferdinand, speaking on Vibe with Five, said: “I think the biggest thing for Chelsea from this game is Edouard Mendy is becoming far too involved in situations like this.

“Against Leeds, he was at fault for the first goal. This one as well. There’s been other occasions where he’s made mistakes and hasn’t been punished.

“They need to iron that out quick because he was brilliant last season, he was phenomenal.

“He needs to eradicate those mistakes from his game. You don’t want to be in the news as a goalkeeper. The less you talk about them the better they’re doing. At the moment he’s also in the news.”
