Chelsea winger Mykhailo Mudryk has claimed that he is delighted with the impact made by Mauricio Pochettino in his first weeks as manager.
He told ESPN that he is feeling good now he is back in action with the new man in charge.
Mudryk made his first appearance of pre-season at the weekend when the Blues went up against Brighton in the Premier League Summer Series.
He was a second half substitute in what turned into an entertaining 4-3 win for Chelsea, as they continued to show patterns of play that had clearly already been worked on under the new manager.
Mudryk praises Pochettino
The relief on his face was clear to see, as he came into this camp in the United States off the back of a underwhelming first few months at Stamford Bridge.
He failed to find the net last season, supplying just one assist as the Blues laboured to a 12th place finish in the league.
However, he has now claimed that he feels he can give up to 80% more than he has been so far in a blue shirt.
He said: “It is not all my potential. It is only 20%. I feel good because playing under Pochettino, our manager, it is nice, it is enjoyable and it is a new team which is also enjoyable.”
It will be interesting to see if the Ukraine international is given the opportunity to flourish throughout the rest of pre-season, with places in the side for the opening game of the season up for grabs.
