Mykhailo Mudryk Sends a Clear Message to Mauricio Pochettino Ahead of Chelsea’s Clash with Bournemouth
Mykhailo Mudryk has delivered a clear message to Mauricio Pochettino ahead of Chelsea’s match against Bournemouth in the Premier League. Mudryk, eager for a starting role, has faced a challenging start to the season, with no league starts and limited playing time off the bench.
An injury kept him out of the Luton and AFC Wimbledon matches, but he has since returned to training and played for Ukraine during the international break in a European championship qualifier against England.
Mudryk faces competition from players like Kyle Walker and Ben Chilwell, who have been used in advanced roles by Pochettino in recent matches. However, fans have called for Mudryk, Noni Madueke, or Cole Palmer to start.
Despite calls for a tactical rethink, Pochettino defended his use of Chilwell, emphasizing his ability to contribute in different positions and create chances.
Mudryk showcased his strengths, including his electric pace and quick footwork, in training. He posted a clip of a goal where he bypassed a defender and finished emphatically, reminiscent of his impressive debut against Liverpool earlier this year.
Confidence and trust from the coaching staff are vital for Mudryk’s success at Stamford Bridge, and he has expressed his understanding of Pochettino’s expectations, making it easier for him to enjoy the game with his teammates.
