In the match between Ukraine and England in the EURO 2024 qualifiers, Mudryk was assigned to start on the left wing and faced off directly against England’s Kyle Walker. Despite Ukraine’s impressive performance in the game, Mudryk failed to leave a significant mark due to Walker’s relentless marking.
You are reading Chelsea fans are extremely frustrated due to Mudryk’s injury.
Notably, in several speed duels, Mudryk even lagged behind his opponent, who was 10 years older. In the final minutes of the second half, Mudryk requested to be substituted after sustaining an injury. The 22-year-old player clutched his leg in pain after attempting to get past Walker.
Earlier in the first half, Mudryk also required medical attention following a challenge by Marcus Rashford. He was able to continue playing, but he couldn’t complete the match and had to leave the field in the closing minutes.
Now, Chelsea will have to await the medical assessment of Mudryk’s injury, while they already have a lengthy list of injured players, including Christopher Nkunku, Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Trevoh Chalobah.
Chelsea recently advised Mudryk to lose weight and cut back on supplementary gym sessions to help him recover more quickly. Mudryk has made 20 appearances for the London club, with no goals and only 2 assists.
Witnessing Mudryk’s latest injury, Chelsea fans expressed their disappointment on social media:
- With the money spent on Mudryk, maybe we should use it to pay Kyle Walker until he’s 40, and I believe he would still be faster than that Ukrainian guy.
- Injured in a speed contest against someone 10 years older, Mudryk is indeed a disappointment. Physically and mentally weak, I don’t know what to expect from him.
- Watching Mudryk play, I genuinely think our team is involved in money laundering.
- Brought in just to run and now losing in a race against Walker, then getting injured and returning to London. Fantastic, Mudryk!
