Mihailo Mudrik (22, Chelsea) set a new speed record in his debut game in England.
Mudrik replaced Liverpool in the 21st round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Anfield in Liverpool, England on the 21st (Korean time). On the 15th, it was Mudrik’s first game as he moved from Donetsk to Shakhta, Ukraine to Chelsea in England.
On this day, Moudrik recorded an instant speed of 36.63 km/h. It is the fastest of all players recorded in the Premier League this season. Following Moudrik in first place, Anthony Gordon (Everton) ran 36.61km/h, Darwin Núñez (Liverpool) ran 36.53km/h, Elling Holland (Man City) ran 36.22km/h, Dennis Zakaria took 5th. (Chelsea) recorded 36.09 km/h.
Even if he expands his range to the European stage, Mudrik’s speed is at a level that can be counted on one hand. Kylian Mbappe (PSG), synonymous with fast feet, recorded a maximum speed of 35 km/h at the moment in the round of 16 match against Poland at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Ousmane Dembele (FC Barcelona) recorded 36.6 km/h in the UEFA Champions League. Mudriq’s speed reached these levels.
Chelsea have high hopes for Moudrik. This is because he is a player who was recruited by paying a whopping 100 million euros (approximately 134 billion won). Mudrik is the second most expensive transfer in Chelsea history and the fifth most expensive in Premier League history. 스포츠토토
Besides Moudrik, Chelsea also signed Joao Felix (on loan), David Popana, Benoit Badiacil, Andrei Santos and Noni Madueke this winter. Spending money is the highest in Europe. Chelsea spent more than 140 billion won on transfers than the transfer fees paid by teams in the four leagues of Spain, Italy, Germany and France.
Because the road to go is busy. Chelsea are currently in 10th place in the Premier League. In 20 matches, they had 8 wins, 5 draws, 7 bogs, and only 29 points. The difference between the 4th place and the 4th place widened to 10 points. Between the top four and Chelsea are Tottenham, Brighton, Fulham, Brentford and Liverpool.
