Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) was summoned for an article related to Chelsea striker Mihailo Mudrik (22). In the local area, there is a story that ‘Mudrik can become Son Heung-min of Chelsea’ because the characteristics of the two are similar. 

This is because former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino’s appointment at Chelsea has entered a countdown. Chelsea have temporarily entrusted the helm to club legend coach Frank Lampard, and are currently in the process of selecting a new head coach. Pochettino is likely to lead Chelsea. 

There are local observations that if Pochettino takes over, Mudrik, who has been sluggish since transferring to Chelsea, can revive. Mudrik left Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine) in January and wore a Chelsea shirt. At the time, Chelsea spent 100 million euros (145 billion won). His contract period is eight and a half years. It was a truly extraordinary contract. 

However, Moudrik is not living up to expectations. He appeared in 13 English Premier League (EPL) matches, starting and replacing, but scored only 2 assists without scoring. Considering that he is still young and is new to the big leagues, there are voices saying he needs time, but reports are coming out that Chelsea is also tired.

There is also a prospect of seeing the light under Pochettino’s managerial system. British media Football London said on the 17th (Korean time), “EPL heavyweight player Son Heung-min also wanted to leave the team after one season in London. However, manager Pochettino persuaded him to stay.”먹튀검증

In fact, Son Heung-min only scored 4 league goals in the 2015/16 season, but since then he has been scoring double digits every season. The media also highlighted Son Heung-min’s recent record of 100 goals and predicted, “It’s too early to say that Mudrik can come close to this (Son Heung-min’s) level, but there is room for improvement under Pochettino’s coaching system.”

It is unreasonable to compare the two, but I saw that Mudrik could show off his talents as Son Heung-min grew up under Pochettino. The media said, “The two players, who have both great speed and natural talent, also showed the ability to score goals with both feet.” “Mudrik also has a desire to develop at Chelsea. He will be an interesting player at Chelsea.” 

Son Heung-min made his name in the DESK (Dele Alli-Christian Eriksen-Son Heung-min-Harry Kane) line under Pochettino’s past. He started to shine under Pochettino and even won the Golden Boot last season.
