Gary Neville, a former Premier League player, has responded to Graham Potter's early substitution of Mykhailo Mudryk during their 0-0 draw with Fulham on Friday night in the Premier League.
The manager had claimed that the Ukrainian international had a cold during Friday night's scoreless draw between Chelsea and Fulham.
The 22-year-old was acquired by Chelsea from Shakhtar Donetsk last month for the sum of £89 million.
In his first game for the Blues against Liverpool last month, he put on an electrifying performance.
However, he performed somewhat less well against Fulham in his full debut and was taken off at halftime.
Neville questioned the choice to replace Mudryk, stating that such choices might have an impact on the player's confidence.
Speaking on Sky Sports, he said, “They’ve got so many options." Mudryk is £80m odd; he’s had a pretty poor first half, let’s be clear, but he’s off!
“Maybe Mudryk has actually got an injury we don’t know yet."
“It’s interesting. Would he hook him at halftime? An £80 million signing? I can’t think he would, but if he has, it’s a brave one. It certainly won’t help the confidence of the new signing.”
