POTTER BACKS MUDRYK IN HIS RECENT PRESS CONFERENCE
However, Potter intends to get Mudryk back into the team sheet against Leicester City and says that the player getting used to his new life. Chelsea boss further claimed in Press-conference:-
“Every player wants to play and it’s important that players play to improve, I think that’s a fact,
“But at the same time, it’s not a straight road, it’s not just a play and everything happens in a linear way. Sometimes you have to take a step away.
“Sometimes you just need a bit of training time, you need a breather. Lots of factors. Hopefully, he can benefit from the time he’s had. It’s not easy for him to just arrive in the middle of pre-season for him and to come into a new country, new club, new league, and just hit his absolute maximum level.
“It’s regardless of the fee, I know people will look at the fee but it doesn’t change the situation he is in. So we’re positive about him. We’re positive about the future for him. But we need just to help them settle and help him understand what he needs to do to help us.”
Potter also told as Chelsea are currently struggling with a few injuries and that could give a chance to Mudryk:-
“He certainly comes into the equation,”
“He will be in the squad tomorrow and there is a chance he can play.”
