Mykhailo Mudryk’s five-word reaction after Mauricio Pochettino gives him gift at Chelsea training today.
It looks like Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has rewarded Mykhailo Mudryk for his goal against Fulham on Monday.
Mykhailo Mudryk finally opened up his account in blue after putting his side 1-0 up in the recent west London derby at Craven Cottage, and the winger has now shared an image of him receiving a copy of his manager’s book Brave New World: Inside Pochettino’s Spurs from the man himself.
Instagram story, the 22-year-old wrote: “Thank you for the gift.”

Pochettino is quite literally putting his arm around Mudryk’s shoulder, and that is what the Ukrainian needs after such a difficult start to life in England.
His goal against Marco Silva’s side was only his first for Chelsea despite having arrived at the club all the way back in January.
It came at a good time, though, and hopefully it is the first of many.
The Blues have really struggled this season, with that win against Fulham only taking them up to 11th, showing just how badly they were doing.
However, after that victory, things are beginning to look much brighter for both Mudryk and Chelsea.
Next up for Pochettino’s men is a trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley, who won their first Premier League game of the campaign against Luton Town yesterday.
Chelsea have some hard fixtures coming up, which includes more London derbies, so they really cannot afford to drop points on Saturday. After their performance at Craven Cottage, it would be a huge disappointment if they went on to draw or lose their next match.
