Mauricio Pochettino is playing a risky game by relying on a ‘quite unique’ player.

Mauricio Pochettino continues to support the youngster through thick and thin.
The pressure is mounting on Mauricio Pochettino to get the best out of £88.5million signing Mykhaylo Mudryk after a laboured start to life at Stamford Bridge. Mudryk has yet to score in a competitive game for Chelsea, despite his manager’s confidence in him. If he continues to struggle in January, his manager may be forced to make a ruthless decision.

If Mudryk is unable to make an immediate impact for the west Londoners, club executives may demand that he be sent out on loan to continue his development elsewhere. As evidenced by Chelsea’s long list of managers over the years, the club is not known for its patience.

Pochettino is optimistic that the Ukrainian winger will succeed in the long run, as he has observed encouraging signs both on and off the field.

“He is quite unique. I think it is a good challenge for him and for [the coaching staff],” said Pochettino. “Misha is a very talented player but you need to go with him very slowly. [It’s] cultural and everything is completely different to [how we] Latin people [are].

“He is now trying to be more open and trying to adapt and be more involved in every single situation, not only on the field, off the field also and he is making a massive effort to try and integrate himself and understand better what it means to play like a team.”

However, Pochettino is playing a risky game by relying on Mudryk despite his subpar performances. As a result of his injuries, he has been left with few alternatives. However, his manager is in jeopardy if the January signing does not improve.
However, there are some encouraging signs, which will encourage the former Tottenham manager. Mudryk is determined to reach his full potential and is working diligently in the background. Unidentified Chelsea player told the Daily Mail, “He is working so hard, it’s as if he’s in the gym every hour.”

Clearly, the youngster’s spirits have not been dampened by his recent poor performance, as his most recent interviews indicate he is more hungry than ever. Mudryk compared his situation to that of Real Madrid star Vincius Jr., who required a few seasons to adjust to life in Spain following his 2018 move from Flamengo.

The Brazilian superstar is now ranked among the best players in the world and Mudryk feels he carries the same potential. “My status? “Take a look at Vinicius in his first season at Real Madrid and now,” the former Shakhtar Donetsk star said. “Players need time to demonstrate their skill level after moving to a new country.” Pochettino must have faith that the player will disprove his doubters.
