Mykhailo Mudryk ‘likes’ Instagram post criticising Chelsea teammate after West Ham draw

Mykhailo Mudryk appeared to have liked a post on Instagram that criticized teammate Marc Cucurella following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United.

Chelsea had to settle for a tie in a frustrating game in East London where they were denied a clear penalty. Tomas Soucek blocked Conor Gallagher’s shot with his arm.

Mudryk, who was signed for £88 million, had trouble breaking through the West Ham defense and showed signs of frustration with Cucurella at one point in the second half.

During the match, Cucurella received the ball just inside the West Ham half with Mudryk making a run down the left, slipping past his marker and into open space.

Instead of passing the ball to the winger, Cucurella opted to turn inward and made a simple pass to Enzo Fernandez, which did not sit well with Mudryk.

The incident and others like it were noticed by Chelsea fans, leading to the creation of a meme showing Cucurella ignoring Mudryk in favor of his other Chelsea teammates. This post was liked by Mudryk’s Instagram account.

In addition to his on-field incident, Cucurella has also been dealing with a personal issue in recent weeks and was involved in another social media incident this week involving Chelsea’s co-owner Todd Boehly.

On Thursday, Boehly’s Twitter account liked a tweet from football.london that included an article with quotes from Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf.

“We don’t want to see Cucurella anymore,” the club’s former defender said. “With all due respect to a man that I don’t know, the player is not good enough for Chelsea. It’s as simple as that.”

The former Brighton defender endured another difficult afternoon at West Ham on Saturday, where his replacement in the second half was greeted with cheers by Chelsea’s traveling fans.

“Supporters are entitled to their opinion of course, they just want the team to do well and as I said in the previous press conference I don’t think Marc is in his absolute best moment,” Potter said.

“But at the same time he’s been part of a team that’s kept a clean sheet at Anfield, a clean sheet against Fulham.

“In the summer, I know because I was the selling club, there was another club that were interested in Marc.

“From a points view in the Premier League they are a good club, so Marc hasn’t become a bad player at all but some players can go through bad times so we need to stick together and help him.

“Supporters are entitled to their opinion there’s nothing for me to be critical of. That’s just what we have to work with.”
