Mykhailo Mudryk sent Eden Hazard message after his first Chelsea debut
Mykhailo Mudryk played his first game for the team against Liverpool. Former Blues striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was impressed with how the winger did. Jimmy Floyd says that Mykhailo Mudryk could reach the same heights as Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge.
Mudryk got a lot of attention this season when he dominated games for Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Champions League against teams like Real Madrid, RB Leipzig, and Celtic. He was supposed to go to Arsenal in January, but Chelsea used their money to sign the Ukraine winger for a starting price of £62 million that could go up to £89 million in the future.
He played his first game for the Blues at Anfield over the weekend. He caught everyone’s attention right away with a jinking move that left Liverpool stunned. Joe Gomez didn’t know what to think. Liverpool found it hard to keep up with Mudryk because he ran straight and fast. These two things remind Hasselbaink of Eden Hazard, who played for the club for seven very successful years before leaving for Real Madrid in 2019.
Hasselbaink, who used to play forward for Chelsea, said: “Arsenal had an estimate, but if there is a price war, the club selling the player must stand firm.
“Since their main goal was to do business, Arsenal’s reluctance to complete the deal at the same level as them helped Chelsea. I think this agreement will be very good for Chelsea. I have no doubt that he will give the fans a lot of happiness and joy over the next few seasons.

“Even though I brought up Joe Cole, I think he may be even more important than Eden Hazard. If you remember, Hazard came from Lille and needed some time to get used to life in England in his first year. It wouldn’t be fair to compare the two, so I won’t. That’s something you should keep in mind.
“But all of a sudden, he took off and became an important part of the team at Stamford Bridge. Mudryk will try to make his first big club debut the following week when Chelsea plays Fulham in the Premier League.
