A Goalless Start, But A Bright Future: Mykhailo Mudryk’s Prediction By Ukraine Caretaker Boss
Ukraine caretaker coach Ruslan Rotan is confident that Mykhailo Mudryk will live up to the £89 million ($110 million) price tag invested in him by Chelsea. The 22-year-old winger joined the Blues from Shakhtar Donetsk during the January transfer window but has yet to open his account for the club, with only one assist recorded through seven appearances. Despite the slow start, Rotan believes that Mudryk has the potential to be a key player in the Premier League and just needs time to adjust to his new surroundings.
“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.” The Ukraine caretaker coach is also optimistic about Mudryk’s role in the upcoming Euro 2024 qualification campaign against England on Sunday, stating that the winger is “very motivated to play at Wembley” and is “one of the key players.”
Mudryk faces tough competition for a starting spot at Chelsea, with the likes of Christian Pulisic, Raheem Sterling, Hakim Ziyech, and Noni Madueke also competing for wide attacking positions. The Blues will next play in the Premier League on April 1 against Aston Villa.
In conclusion, Ukraine caretaker coach Ruslan Rotan’s confidence in Mykhailo Mudryk’s potential is a positive sign for the young winger. Despite his slow start, Rotan believes that Mudryk has the talent and motivation to become a key player in the Premier League. Only time will tell if Mudryk will live up to his price tag, but for now, Rotan and the Ukraine national team are optimistic about his future.
