Former Chelsea star Florent Malouda has urged Mykhaylo Mudryk to follow the footsteps of Real Madrid star Vinicius.

Malouda said, according to GOAL: “Mykhailo Mudryk is very talented. When he made his debut he was very impressive. I think he came into this game fresh, full of confidence and we all could see his huge potential.

“My message is this: you have chosen to take on the challenge of playing for Chelsea, which is a great club, but look at the example of Vinicius Jr.

“I think it’s a good comparison to make and it’s the right example for him to follow. As a point of reference, he should look at how he has developed.

“I think Mudryk can have the same impact at Chelsea as Vinicius at Madrid. He has to work hard, have the right mentality – he can become a leader in the Chelsea team if he shows the necessary ambition. I hope he believes in himself as much as the club believes in him.”
