Poyet issues an apology to Chelsea star Mudryk over his initial comments on the player; Here is what he said.
There have been many speculations that the star is not actually worth the price he was bought for but this all changed when he played in the U21 world cup and all assertiosn about Mudryk was thrown out the window.
The €100m January signing from Shakhtar Donetsk failed to live up to expectations, with Poyet among those getting carried away with his arrival.
“When Chelsea signed Mykhailo Mudryk, I thought it was outstanding,” he told 888Sport.
“I thought, ‘wow, what an unbelievable player!’ Then I remembered what happened to me and loads of other foreign players when they first move to England – everyone is different and we all need different amounts of time to adapt to football.
“We think we are good enough and say, ‘tomorrow I will play and be the best player on the pitch’, but football is different and life is different – we all adapt in our own times.
“I think new players and foreign players – including myself when I played – they need to be careful, because I know what can happen to all of them.”
