Chelsea forced to intervene over Mykhailo Mudryk's gym habit

Chelsea forced to intervene over Mykhailo Mudryk's gym habit

Mykhailo Mudryk has been putting in the extra work at the gym.

Chelsea have reportedly told Mykhailo Mudryk to 'tone the gym work down' due to concerns he's overdoing it.

Mudryk joined Chelsea from Shakhtar Donetsk in a transfer worth £88.5 million last January.

He made an impression on his debut against Liverpool but has since failed to deliver following his big-money move.

The 22-year-old has yet to score a single goal in his 20 appearances, with the club expressing some concerns over him overdoing it in the gym.

Mudryk is often seen in the gym through his social media platforms as he puts in the extra work amid his slump.

But, according to The Athletic, some believe he is in the gym 'too much'. It's even claimed that he visits ones away from Chelsea.

Per the report, the club have told him to 'tone the gym work' down a little due to concerns he is overdoing it.

A source said: "He will be in the gym at the training ground before and after normal drills. He loves it.

"He will do what Chelsea ask him to do training-wise, but will always find the time for extra gym work. Players notice he is committed. He wants to be better. People need to leave him alone. He is a nice lad."

Mudryk's gym habit is not a new phase as he was already regularly exercising like this at Shakhtar.

He viewed heavy weights and powerlifting as a way to build his stamina and physical readiness.

Mudryk, meanwhile, was a second-half substitute in Chelsea's shock 1-0 home defeat to Nottingham Forest last weekend.

He's yet to start a league game under Mauricio Pochettino this season.

The Ukrainian is now on international duty for his country's Euro 2024 qualifiers against England and Italy.

As for Chelsea, they resume their league campaign on September 17 against Bournemouth.
