It makes me happy just looking at the photos.
It would be difficult to express in words how happy you are to meet the old teacher who raised you while living in a foreign country.
This is the story of Mikhailo Mudrik, a 22-year-old Ukrainian striker who has been receiving all sorts of criticism after wearing a Chelsea uniform for 100 million euros (about 140 billion won), called ‘the second Shevchenko’.
Mudriq, who entered the Premier League last winter but recorded only two assists without a goal, posted a picture of him on his SNS on the 19th.
In the Premier League home game against Brighton on the 15th, Roberto De Zerbi, the manager of the opposing team, saw him and grabbed his face and smiled brightly
Mudriq expressed his love for De Jerbi with a red heart saying, “Nice to meet you.” Director De Jerbi also showed a sincere expression of liking while watching Mudriq. How proud he must be that the student he taught is coming to a big club in the Premier League and playing as a starter. 스포츠토토
Their relationship goes back two years. This is because De Jerbi, a promising coach in Italy born in 1979, has been appointed as the coach of Shakhtar Donetsk, a prestigious Ukrainian club.
Coincidentally, Shakhtar had Mudrik, who started playing as a member of the first team at the age of 17.
Coach De Jerbi took note of Mudrik, who returned after a rental period for another team, and used him in 12 out of 18 games (11 starting matches) in the first half of the 2021/22 season and raised him as a main player.
However, their relationship did not last more than 6 months.
Due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Ukrainian first division ended in December 2021, and coach De Jerby also left Shakhtar because it was difficult to lead a leadership life in the midst of war.
However, in September of last year, manager Graham Porter, who led Brighton, went to Chelsea, and manager De Jerby came as his successor. In addition, Mudrik came to Chelsea with a huge amount of 100 million euros after pouring love calls from the Premier League.
It must have been a great comfort to the young man Moudrik to have met like this in England, a long distance away.
He expressed his feelings for such a teacher with a red heart. He has been reborn as a new player in the Premier League this season, and he recorded an assist as if he received the spirit of coach Jerbi.
