William Gallas has compared Mykhailo Mudryk to Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar following the Chelsea star's impressive performance against Fulham. The 22-year-old winger led the Blues to a two-nil win over Marco Silva's side at Craven Cottage on Monday night as he finally begins to find his feet in the Premier League.
Despite showing glimpses of brilliance last season, Mudryk struggled to fully integrate himself into the Chelsea starting lineup. But, since Mauricio Pochettino has taken over, the Ukraine international has relished the chance to prove exactly why the west Londoners fought so hard for his signature.
In an interview with Gambling Zone, Gallas insisted that Mudryk has shown shades of Ronaldo recently – as well as Mbappe and Neymar. The former Chelsea defender said: «I think he has all of the attributes to become a top, top player.
»We can all see that he has the ingredients, we are just waiting to see his real quality. He makes things look really easy. The way that he can accelerate past players, he makes his opponent look slow.
«One player that was a little bit similar was Cristiano Ronaldo. When Cristiano was younger and first came to the Premier League, he showed that he had all of the technical ability and the pace. He showed incredible skill with his stepovers.
»Everything he did on the pitch was fast. Mudryk has some similar movements. I think when he can put everything together, it will be very difficult to stop Mudryk. He has the same ability as Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Mbappe when it comes to his ground speed and acceleration."
