Chelsea manager, Graham Potter has risen to the defense of Ukrainian winger, Mykhailo Mudryk assuring fans that he would still come good.
According to Potter, the fine dribbler and ball passer may not be able to showcase his qualities until next season.
The £88.5 million player joined Chelsea in January after it was reported that the Blues hijacked the deal from London rivals Arsenal.
“He’s a player we believe in a lot,” the former Brighton boss told the press on Friday ahead of their game against Leicester City.
“He’s adapting. When he arrived, he was in a start of a pre-season campaign. To hit the Premier League running, it’s not easy to do.
“Day by day he’s getting stronger. He’s in the squad, chance he can play.’’
Mudryk first game was against Liverpool at Anfield where he showed a world class performance after being introduced in the second half of the encounter but Chelsea’s poor of of fun afterwards slowed down his game.
