Prior to their Premier League match against Chelsea, Arsenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko issued a warning to Mykhailo Mudryk, a member of their team from the Ukraine.
The former Manchester City full-back made a joke with a fellow countryman that the Blues would face severe penalties if he scored for Chelsea against Arsenal in their Premier League matchup this Saturday.
Mudryk’s contribution to Ukraine’s 3-1 victory over Malta in the Euro 2024 qualifying matches received praise from Zinchenko as well.
WHAT THEY SAID:
Zinchenko said to a Ukrainian news station after the game, “I told him, ‘If you do or attempt to do that on Saturday, I’ll rip your balls off.'” However, the fact that we earned three points was the most crucial. Mykhailo’s goal was vital since it contributed to the game’s calming down, so I’m extremely happy for him and the national team.
In Chelsea’s 2-0 Premier League victory over Fulham earlier this month, the 22-year-old former Shakhtar Donetsk star scored his first goal.
What follows? In a crucial Premier League match on Saturday, Mikel Arteta’s in-form Arsenal team will take on Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea.
