Chelsea star Mendy 'motivated' by surprise Ballon d'Or snub

 The goalkeeper was a notable absence from the award's 30-man shortlist


Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy admits he was puzzled to see his name left off the Ballon d'Or shortlist, but the omission has only inspired him to achieve greater things in the future.


Mendy enjoyed a dream debut season at Stamford Bridge last term, leading the Blues to Champions League glory for the second time in the club's history.


But the ex-Rennes man was a conspicuous absentee when the final candidates for the traditional end-of-year award were released.
