Todd Boehly has revealed the Chelsea signing that has failed to meet expectations more than Richarlison and Antony.
Todd Boehly revealed that there is a player at Chelsea who has been considered “more disappointing” than Richarlison and Antony, as the team faces challenges during a turbulent transition period, with a number of players finding it difficult to adjust to their new environment.
This comes amidst a season where Premier League clubs have spent over £2.5 billion on players, resulting in mixed performances from new signings. While some players like Erling Haaland, Casemiro, and Gabriel Jesus have adjusted well to their new clubs, others have struggled. Chelsea, in particular, has made significant investments in players, spending around £270 million in the summer on new signings such as Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling, and Kalidou Koulibaly, among others. In January, the club spent a further £323 million on Enzo Fernandez, Mykhailo Mudryk, Noni Madueke, and others on loan.
He replied: “Mudryk it has to be, I’m not a big fan of Antony and Richarlison has been hot and cold; he’s not always had game time, Conte hasn’t always played him.”
Despite Mudryk’s misfortunes since joining Chelsea, Ukraine caretaker boss Ruslan Rotan has backed the winger to improve next season. Speaking to the press ahead of Ukraine’s Euro 2024 qualifier against England on Sunday, the 41-year-old said: “Mykhailo is a great talent and fulfilling his potential is right ahead of him.
“In a couple of months’ time he will play a key role in the Premier League. He’s one of the diamonds in our team and we cherish him. He’s very motivated to play at Wembley. He’s one of the key players. It’s very positive and we look forward to his future with great optimism.”
