Chelsea is not a team – Carlo Nicolini


Shakhtar Donetsk assistant manager, Carlo Nicolini has hit out at Chelsea, saying it is the wrong environment for winger Mykhaylo Mudryk to thrive.

According to Nicolini, Chelsea is not a team because individual players struggled at Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

“Chelsea is not a team, individual players struggle there,” Nicolini told TV Play.

“In the national team, you can see the real Mykhailo Mudryk, he can do even more.”

He added, “In the national team you can see the real Mudryk, he can do even more. He must find the right environment and a coach who gives him confidence. He has everything to rock, I hope he can show it because he is really strong.”

Recall that Chelsea signed Mudryk from Shakhtar in January this year.

The Ukrainian international has scored just two goals and provided two assists across 28 appearances for the Blues across all competitions.
