Chelsea’s Ukrainian signing causes frustration among fans



Underwhelming performance

Mykhaylo Mudryk, a winger for Chelsea, has been criticised for his underwhelming performance for Ukraine against England on Sunday. He was substituted off at Wembley in the 61st minute, having failed to make his mark up against Manchester City star Kyle Walker.

Struggles at Stamford Bridge

Mudryk was signed by Chelsea in the January transfer window, for a fee of £89million, though he has struggled to justify his price tag at Stamford Bridge since making the big-money switch. The 22-year-old has shown energy and pace when called upon, though his final product has raised questions.

Poor final product

His poor final product has prompted Graham Potter to drop the forward in favour of more proven stars like Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic. Given that he penned an eight-and-a-half-year deal with the Blues, Mudryk is expected to be given an abundance of patience.

Failed to impress

The former Shakhtar Donetsk star failed to provide Chelsea fans with a reason to be excited during Ukraine’s 2-0 loss at the hands of England on Sunday. Manager Ruslan Rotan decided to replace the forward with Girona star Viktor Tsigankov after just over an hour against the Three Lions, prompting widespread mocking.

Cheers and jeers from fans

One Blues fan wrote on Twitter: “Mudryk is genuinely woeful, what a waste of money.” Another added: “All jokes aside, how on earth did Shakhtar get 100m (euros) for Mudryk.” Another asked: “Did Mudryk actually touch the ball without losing it? Absolutely awful from him.” However, numerous Chelsea fans jumped to the defence of their No 15, protesting that the prospect was signed for such a fee because of how good he could become, rather than already being the finished article.
