For Édouard Mendy, the best African player in history is neither Samuel Eto’o nor Didier Drogba. The Chelsea goalkeeper zapped the two legends to name another who he says is above all others.



Like Messi and Ronaldo when discussing the debate around the best player of all time, Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba are also dueling when it comes to Africa.

But for the Senegalese goalkeeper, Édouard Mendy, the best African player in history is none other than the Liberian George Weah: “The best African player in history? George Weah! It is a real pride for the continent. For everything he has done in Europe as a player. He was truly a standard bearer for African football. Crowned with a Ballon d’Or [in 1995]. The only African to have won it. We can really be proud of him. And then also, everything he does as a man for his country, his political commitments, he is really an example outside and on the ground, ”said Mendy during an interview with Carré.
