Speaking to Football Ramble, Darijo Srna has been discussing Mykhaylo Mudryk after the winger decided to join Chelsea in the January transfer window.
The attacker headed to Stamford Bridge towards the end of the winter transfer window, but it’s fair to say that things aren’t quite going to plan for the Ukrainian right now.
He’s yet to score a goal or grab an assist since joining Chelsea, and he’s not even been a part of a winning team since joining the Blues.
According to Srna, Mudryk is not in a good mood at Chelsea, and the Shakhtar Sporting Director has even joked that he’ll re-sign Mudryk once the war in Ukraine is over.
Mudryk isn’t happy
Srna discussed his former player.
“The market decided the price, not me or our president. Mudryk is one of the best players in Europe in his position after Mbappe or Vincius then it’s Mudryk. If someone wants to buy a player from Shakhtar they must respect us. We know how to sell players and how to buy players. He’s from our academy, an amazing kid, an amazing player. Unfortunately, at Chelsea now he’s not in a good mood, Mykhaylo as well, but he has all the qualities to be one of the best players in the Premier League in the next couple of years,” Srna said.
The podcast’s host later told Srna that she was sorry that they had to sell Mudryk, to which he replied:
“It’s no problem, we will buy him back after the war. We will buy him back after the war,” Srna said with his tongue in his cheek.
Must wish he’d joined Arsenal
Mudryk isn’t happy at Chelsea, and we can’t blame him at all for being unhappy.
The Blues are a mess right now, they’ve not won a game for over a month and it’s unclear where their next win will come from.
Meanwhile, the club Mudryk could’ve joined, Arsenal, are flying high at the top of the league and scored a brilliant victory over Aston Villa at the weekend.
We can’t help but think that Mudryk may wish he’d joined Arsenal instead.
