Rio Ferdinand sends message to Arsenal fans after Mykhailo Mudryk’s impressive Chelsea debut against Liverpool

Rio Ferdinand believes Arsenal fans will be gutted they failed to sign Mykhailo Mudryk after his lively Chelsea debut against Liverpool.

Arsenal appeared to be leading the race to sign the 22 year old Ukraine international before Chelsea hijacked the signing.

Rating Mudryk’s debut, Ferdinand told BT Sport: “We’ve all seen the clips of him and that explosive pace. But what I liked about him today is we saw soft feet on him and a good weight of pass too.

“He was making good decisions in the final third and was showing calmness while running at speed. Those elements make him a frightening proposition for full-backs when he gets into full flow.

“This is only his first minutes in a month or so. Who knows what he’s going to be producing after this but it’s exciting for Chelsea fans.

“I’m sure there will be Arsenal fans sitting there going, ‘oh my days, how did we let that one go?'”
