If Pochettino, a powerful manager at Chelsea, is appointed as the new manager, Mudrik’s performance is attracting attention.
Football London, England, reported on the 17th (Korean time) the expectation of Moudrik’s performance if manager Pochettino takes the Chelsea baton. The media said, ‘It’s not easy to remember that Son Heung-min struggled in his debut season in the Premier League. He wanted to leave the team after spending one season at Tottenham, but it was coach Pochettino who persuaded him to stay,’ he said. ‘Son Heung-min scored 4 goals in Tottenham’s debut season, but scored 14 goals the next season. Since then, he has scored at least 10 goals in every season. He has surpassed 100 Premier League goals in his career and has established himself as one of the best players at his position,’ he noted.
The media said, ‘It’s premature to say that Mudrik can approach that level, but there is potential for development. Prior to entering the Premier League, Son Heung-min’s performance in the German Bundesliga was far superior to Mudrik’s performance in Shakhtar Donetsk. But Mudrik has the talent and under Pochettino he will be one of the most exciting players at Chelsea.” 스포츠토토
Moudrik has made 13 Premier League appearances since joining Chelsea this season, recording two assists without a goal on his debut. While Mudrik is not performing as expected, coach Pochettino is highly likely to use Mudrik as the main side striker if he takes over as Chelsea manager.
The British Daily Star predicted that ‘Mudrik will play the role Son Heung-min played at Tottenham, led by Pochettino, at Chelsea.’
