The left back played 37 games with the team led by Mauricio Pochettino, of which he started in 27, and gave two goal assists.
Mendes was nominated for the “Best Promise of the Last Season” trophy of the French league, from which he was chosen as the best left-back at just 19 years old.
He made his debut with the Portuguese national team in March 2021 against Azerbaijan, a few months before participating in the European Championship played last year, and has 13 caps for his national team.
