‘Atleast I’m better than their worthless Martinelli’: Chelsea Star Mykhailo Mudryk finally respond to Arsenal fans Criticism of His poor during their International clash with England yesterday.
It is imperative that Chelsea start to realize value as quickly as possible from some of the most costly additions they have made in the past year at Stamford Bridge.
Mykhailo Mudryk, a winger for Chelsea, “needs to step up” his performances at Stamford Bridge, according to journalist Dean Jones, who mentions Mudryk as another player for whom the displays must improve this season in an interview with GIVEMESPORT.
Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure as manager of the Blues has gotten off to a disappointing start so far this season. The team has only collected four points out of a potential 12 thus far.
Mykhailo Mudryk in the press regarding Chelsea
When Chelsea spent about 89 million pounds to acquire Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk and bring him to Stamford Bridge in January, a lot of people had high hopes for him. The 22-year-old forward was very close to making the move to Arsenal after Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta expressed interest in adding another option to their attack line as the second half of the season approached.
But Chelsea co-owner and chairman Todd Boehly moved swiftly to steal the Ukraine international player from under the noses of the Gunners and sign him to a contract for an amount equal to £88.5 million. Mudryk could not help but express his joy at heading to Stamford Bridge upon his arrival. He had impressed in the first half of the season while playing for Shakhtar (via Sky Sports).
“I couldn’t be more excited to sign for Chelsea. This is a massive club playing in a great league, and the idea itself is very appealing to me at this point in my career. I’m really looking forward to getting to know my new teammates, and I can’t wait to start working with Graham Potter and the rest of his crew.
However, since Mudryk’s arrival in west London, things haven’t exactly gone according to plan for him. Potter, who was serving as head coach at Chelsea when the winger was brought on board, was let go two months after the deal when interim manager Frank Lampard was unable to get the best performance out of the young player. It is now Mauricio Pochettino’s responsibility to help develop the player who holds the record for the highest transfer fee in Ukraine and who has not yet scored for Chelsea.
What exactly has Jones been talking about when it comes to Chelsea and Mudryk?
After observing Ben Chilwell develop into the most advanced player for the Blues, Jones is of the opinion that Chelsea are now in a position in which Lukas Mudryk needs to step up his performance. Jones also argues that the same is true of Marc Cucurella, who cost £60 million. The journalist revealed the following to GIVEMESPORT:
“Now that we’ve reached this point at Chelsea, they’re at the point where they need him to start performing well and making a difference in this squad. Chilwell is the most technologically advanced and potentially deadly player that Chelsea has at this time in their roster. That is not a favorable position to be in at all.
Whatever it is that Pochettino has noticed in him that he considers to be a positive trait, he needs to reevaluate it. Chilwell is an excellent attacking left defender, but he is not a striker or a true winger, and this is the point at which Chelsea has arrived.
They need to tone that down a little bit, and Mudryk needs to raise up his game. The same principle applies to Cucurbita. He needs to evaluate himself in comparison to what is anticipated of Chilwell and consider whether he is capable of meeting that standard and providing the same services.
