Peter Drury joined The Byline to give us an exclusive interview on all matters football and Chelsea specifically. Drury spoke on his thoughts on Pochettino, Gallagher, best signing under the new ownership and so much more.
You can get an early preview of what Drury said on Patreon which can be found here.
One of the segments the Sky Sports and NBC commentator gave us was his defence of Chelsea winger, Mykhailo Mudryk. Drury still has full belief that the Ukrainian international has what it takes to make it at Stamford Bridge.
Drury told The Byline, “I still want Mudryk to be a star and I know they’ll be people rolling their eyes and all of that.
Again you’ve got to understand that this is a very young man who’s come from one football culture to another, from one incidentally very troubled country to ours, leaving behind – these are human beings with families and issues.”
Drury also sent a message to the Chelsea supporters to back Mudryk, especially in troubling times. He told The Byline, “I really hope that Chelsea fans can find it in themselves to cut him a good deal more slack, even over the coming months because it might take in his case two years, three years before the penny properly drops.
He’s clearly a fabulous athlete, he’s clearly very well intentioned and properly motivated, he wants to do well and I’m pretty certain given time he could be a standout star.”
Mudryk has scored four goals in all competitions so far this season for Chelsea, including a late equaliser against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup. Drury was also on commentary for Mudryk’s first goal in the Premier League against Fulham.
