Mendy was thrilled over the weekend following the duo’s contributions to Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Fulham
Chelsea extended their grip on the top 4 zone following a fine win against Fulham F.C. on Saturday.
Kai Havertz played the finisher role as he bagged a brace while Timo Werner and Mason Mount provided him the assists.
Although both Timo and Kai have had a rough start at Stamford Bridge since joining from the German Bundesliga, Mendy believes they will be great players for the club.
‘They are really good players,’ said Mendy. ‘They are young players and it is the first time that they have moved to another country. I think they needed a couple of months to adjust and understand the Premier League but I see them every day and I know how good they are.
‘I am happy for them. They showed their qualities on the pitch.
‘Next season, 100 per cent, we will see the best of Timo and Kai. Even this year, we have enjoyed their good levels of performance and they are important for us. A game like Saturday’s is really good for their confidence.’
‘It was an important game for us because it was a derby and the draw from Leicester against Southampton meant a win would be a good result for us. We know Fulham are a good team, a hard team, so we fought for this win and I was happy with my performance.’
‘It is not easy to switch between the two Champions League games with a Premier League match in the middle but we did it.
‘The manager knows how difficult it is to stay focused in the game against Fulham but we had a good start even though they pressed us high. We stayed strong together and were clinical in the counter-attack.
‘To be honest, we won against Fulham and it was a hard game, but now we must recover and be focused on the Real Madrid game. It is a semi-final and we have won nothing. We need to be ready for this battle.’
