Mykhailo Mudryk was signed with great expectations last January, but it still hasn’t worked out for the Ukrainian at Chelsea.

Mudryk has scored six goals and delivered three assists in 30 appearances for the Blues this season, mostly coming in as an impact sub.

For Ukraine however, the 23-year-old has been the star of the team, with his latest goal sending them through to the Euros.

Has Mudryk improved under Mauricio Pochettino? The Argentine thinks he has.

“I noticed that he is more mature. I have noticed that he is a good example of a player who needs time to improve to be more mature and realise where he is,” Mauricio Pochettino said when asked about Mykhailo Mudryk.

“They all need time and different lengths of time. I was talking about him a month and a half ago, and too many things happened during the first days that he started to train with us. We have the experience of managing these types of young kids. We have too many in this squad that need help. They need to perform for us.

“We know sometimes it is hard for them, but we need to sometimes force them to not feel so comfortable in their situation, to take them out of their comfort zone. For us, it is about helping. When we came here we knew the challenge would be to help. Not just one or two, maybe ten need help. That is why we are always calm and relaxed about the project and we know it is a new one.”
