Few days ago, France brought out the list of players who were nominated for the Ballon d'or award. New players like Nicolo Barella, Simon Kjaer and Gerrard Moreno were all seen in the list.

5 Chelsea players also made the list.These players include Cesar Azplicueta, Jorginho, N'golo Kante, Romelu Lukaku and Mason Mount.

However, another Chelsea top player got missing in the list. His name is Eduoard Mendy and he has remained Thomas Tuchel's 1st choice goalkeeper since the blues signed him from Stade Rennes.

Eduoard Mendy performed very well last season but was still sidelined in the list of Ballon d'or .This made his fellow country man Kalidou Koulibaly to speak ill of UEFA.

Koulibaly said-"It is a real shame Edou wasnt one of them, he is the first African goalkeeper to win the champions league".

Mendy conceded only 3 goals in the last UCL title, he also won the UEFA best goalkeeper's award. Why will he not be named in the Ballon d'or top 30 nomination where there are players like Nicollo Barela in the list.

Eduoard Mendy saved Chelsea against Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Manchestet City last season. He really deserved to be in the top 30 Ballon d'or nomination just as Koulibaly said.
