Lawrence Vigouroux meets hero, Chelsea's Edouard Mendy

access_time 2 months ago

Leyton Orient keeper Lawrence Vigouroux met with Champions League winning goalkeeper Edou Mendy, to discuss racism, black goalkeepers, and what motivated them to play in net.

After racist abuse suffered following The O’s defeat to Port Vale, Vigouroux spoke openly about how Mendy is “paving the way” for black goalkeepers, and so Chelsea reached out for the two to meet.
