Cesar Azpilicueta explains how Mykhailo Mudryk can shine at Chelsea

Cesar Azpilicueta has been heaping praise on Mykhailo Mudryk.


Mykhailo Mudryk made his Chelsea debut on Saturday. The winger joined the Blues this month for a staggering £89m.

Graham Potter opted not to start the Ukrainian vs Liverpool in the day’s early kick-off.

However, Mudryk caught the eye during a 35-minute cameo, setting up a number of openings and hitting the side netting after fine work inside the area, but was unable to make the occasion with a goal.

Now, following the game, Cesar Azpilicueta has explained how Mudryk can shine at Chelsea:

“I’ve seen a very focused lad with great determination, great ambition,” he said of the winger.

“It was his first game since November so, for him, it was like pre-season, he played 35 minutes at Anfield so it’s not the easiest debut and I think he did brilliantly.

“He has a great connection with the fans as well. He’s a player who can have that mix between playing good football with his feet and also running into space. You could see his speed.”

On Mudryk’s price tag, Azpilicueta noted: “He’s very confident. The price tag, I know from the outside it’s there but we players don’t make the prices, it’s a market and when you are in the market, you have competition to get players so I don’t think it has to lie on his shoulders.

“He just has to express himself the way he has been doing. It’s great to see his energy and he will be a very important player.”
