Gallas Identifies Chelsea Star With “Same Ability” As Ronaldo, Neymar, And Mbappe
The Ukrainian international possesses an exceptional turn of pace, and Gallas told the Gambling Zone that he has the “same ability” as Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe:
“I think he has all of the attributes to become a top, top player. We can all see that he has the ingredients, we are just waiting to see his real quality. He makes things look really easy.”
“The way that he can accelerate past players, he makes his opponent look slow. One player that was a little bit similar was Cristiano Ronaldo. When Cristiano was younger and first came to the Premier League, he showed that he had all of the technical ability and the pace. He showed incredible skill with his stepovers. Everything he did on the pitch was fast.”
“Mudryk has some similar movements. I think when he can put everything together, it will be very difficult to stop Mudryk. He has the same ability as Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Mbappe when it comes to his ground speed and acceleration.”
As Gallas points out, the 22-year-old possesses the basic tools to become one of the world’s top strikers. It’s the reason Chelsea paid £87 million for the player.
Unlocking that potential may take some time, but manager Mauricio Pochettino is clearly working hard to get the most out of Mudryk, as seen by his one-on-one work with the Ukrainian on the training pitch.
He could be available for Chelsea’s match against Burnley this weekend
Mudryk would have been devastated to be taken off at halftime with a thigh injury after scoring his first goal for the club on Monday evening at Craven Cottage.
He was spotted in training before of the trip to Burnley, so he might make an appearance at Turf Moor on Saturday.
