Chelsea winger Mykhailo Mudryk insists ‘London is Blue’ as he pokes fun at Arsenal
Mykhailo Mudryk insists Chelsea remain the best team in London despite Arsenal being favourites to win the Premier League title this season.
The winger was Gunners boss Mikel Arteta's key transfer target in January and looked set to become the club's record transfer before Chelsea launched a successful 11th-hour bid to bring him to west London.
Despite ending up on opposite sides of the capital, Mudryk says fellow Ukrainian Oleksandr Zinchenko has helped him settle in England - though insists he picked the right team to join.
"He helped me a lot," Mudryk told Sky Sports of Zinchenko."I like him so much. We often joke about Arsenal, Chelsea and what colour London is.
"But I like this guy, he is a very funny and very kind guy. We spend time always [together] in a positive way.’
Asked to clarify what colour London is, Mudryk replied: "Blue."
Both Mudryk and Zinchenko are expected to line-up for Ukraine against England at Wembley on Sunday.
