Aluko Reacts As Organizers Of Ballon d’ Or Snub Chelsea Star

Former Chelsea player, Eni Aluko has described Mendy’s omission from this year’s Ballon d’ Or 30-man shortlist as very odd.

The former player believes the Chelsea goalkeeper should have been included in the Ballon d’ Or 30-man nominees released recently.

It could be recalled that the 30-man shortlist for this year’s Ballon d’Or was announced some few days ago, with five Chelsea players included.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount Jorginho and N’Golo Kante are in the list.

Edouard Mendy enjoyed a stunning debut season in the English Premier League (EPL) and capped it off by winning the UEFA Champions League, as Chelsea defeated Man City 1-0 in the final.

Mendy also won the UEFA Super Cup with Chelsea.

Speaking on the development, Aluko told BT Sport: “He’s arguably Chelsea’s most important player. He’s irreplaceable.

“His omission from the Ballon d’Or list is very odd".
