Mudryk have been warned about new Chelsea nightmare under Pochettino; Here is what he was told.
Potter brought Mudryk to Chelsea in January, with owner Todd Boehly beating Arsenal to his signature by committing to pay up to £88million to Shakhtar Donetsk. However, he is yet to score in his first 15 appearances and has registered just two assists.
He hasn’t been a regular under any of the coaches he has played under since making the move to England. And former Liverpool and Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam reckons it could be a familiar story once Pochettino arrives.
Mudryk signed a contract at Chelsea to keep him at the club until 2031. But Adam can see Pochettino not fancying the 22-year-old and sending him out on a long-term loan.
Speaking on BBC’s The Monday Night Club, Adam said: “It’s not easy when they’re on six or seven-year contracts. It’s not just what the owner wants, Pochettino is the man now. He has to make the decision.
“He might not fancy Mudryk. He might come in and say ‘Don’t want him’.
