Mykhaylo Mudryk of Chelsea is mocked for his subpar performance and early exit versus England.
Mykhaylo Mudryk was carried off the court against England on Sunday night.
Chelsea’s Mykhaylo Mudryk has received criticism after his lackluster display for Ukraine against England on Sunday. At Wembley, the winger was substituted in the 61st minute after failing to make an impression against Kyle Walker of Manchester City.
Mudryk paid £89 million to join Chelsea in the January transfer window, but since the expensive swap, he has had trouble living up to his price tag at Stamford Bridge. The 22-year-old has displayed enthusiasm and speed when needed, but Graham Potter benched the striker in favor of more seasoned players like Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic because of concerns about his end product.
After agreeing to an eight and a half-year contract with the Blues, Mudryk is anticipated to be given plenty of time. The former Shakhtar Donetsk player, nevertheless, was unable to energize Chelsea supporters during Ukraine’s 2-0 loss to England on Sunday.
After just over an hour against the Three Lions, manager Ruslan Rotan decided to replace the forward with Girona star Viktor Tsigankov, prompting widespread mockery. “Mudryk is genuinely woeful, what a waste of money,” one Blues fan wrote on Twitter.
All kidding aside, how did Shakhtar obtain 100 million euros for Mudryk, the commenter continued. Did Mudryk genuinely touch the ball without losing it, a another person questioned? Extremely terrible of him.
The potential was allegedly purchased for such a hefty amount because of how good he could become rather than because he was already the final product, according to several Chelsea supporters who supported their No. 15.
The Ukrainian hero Andriy Shevchenko thinks Mudryk will succeed at Chelsea and that he made the right choice to join Chelsea despite interest from Arsenal in January.
According to him, he is only getting started in a tremendous football career. For him, arriving in Chelsea was the ideal first move. He is involved in a sizable project. He is in good hands.
“How much the organization believed in his talent determined the choice to acquire him at this time. He has a very lengthy contract, which is really unusual. Chelsea is making investments for the future. Normally, the Premier League needs results immediately, but let’s wait and see how he performs in eight years. Let’s see what he can accomplish over time. The club needs to be patient with him and have faith in his abilities.
