Leboeuf tells Chelsea fans: Mendy much better than Kepa and Caballero

Chelsea hero Franck Leboeuf is backing Edouard Mendy for success with Chelsea.

This morning, Blues boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Mendy's transfer to Chelsea is done barring a medical.

Leboeuf told ESPN: "Well, comparing to what we see from Kepa... Kepa is doing what he does best - mistakes - yes, Mendy is much better than that.

"He had a very good season in Reims, signed for Rennes and had a very good season for Rennes.

"So I am very confident that he can do the job and much better than Kepa, and even much better than Caballero.

"So I don't know if there is another goalkeeper who Chelsea could find but for that amount of money - yeah it's kind of a bargain to have Mendy.

"He's a tall goalkeeper, very agile and I'm sure he's going to do the job.

"But Kepa cannot do the job anymore. It's over."
