Champions League: Tuchel hints at dropping Mendy for Dinamo Zagreb clash

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has hinted that goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is set for a recall.

Edouard Mendy has been in shaky form for the Blues since the start of the season.

And Tuchel is considering dropping him ahead of their Champions League opener at Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday.

Kepa was linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer but failed to find a new club.

“He tried and checked his options, which we were aware of.

“They were not satisfying for him or for us so he stayed, and I’m very happy about that.

“I was always very clear directly with him that I would love him to stay and my point of view is that he’s absolutely ready to play. It’s on us if we give him the chance or not but he’s 100 per cent ready with how he behaves and trains,” Tuchel said.
