Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy, has admitted he would like to see Liverpool’s Sadio Mane win the Champions League, so he could stand a chance of winning the Ballon d’Or.

The Reds clash with Real Madrid this Saturday, looking to complete a treble by winning Europe’s top club competition.

Mane, who plays for Senegal alongside Mendy, managed to score 16 Premier League goals and provide two assists.

In the Champions League, he has played 12 matches and scored five times.

The 30-year-old also helped the Teranga Lions win their maiden Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title at the beginning of the year.

“I want Sadio to win the Champions League of course,” Mendy told Foot Mercato.

“He is having an exceptional season, he is in the running for the Ballon d’Or and the Champions League will mark a turning point. He plays against his biggest competitor. Whoever emerges victorious will score a lot of points.”
