Wow! Fans told £138M signings ‘don’t have what it takes’ to play for Chelsea
William Gallas is worried that Mykhailo Mudryk and Marc Cucurella don’t have what it takes to play for a ‘big club’ like CHELSEA.
Chelsea spent some serious money on bringing Cucurella and Mudryk to the club in hope they would improve key areas of the pitch.
Cucurells was rated as one of the best left-backs in the Premier League when Chelsea decided to pay £50 million to get a deal done – but he has not impressed like many had hoped for.
Mudryk has made a name for himself as one of the most exciting talents in the game – but even since his move – he has not shown the quality which prompted interest from Real Madrid and Arsenal.
Now, Gallas has sent a worrying message to the fans and claimed that he believes the duo don’t have what it takes to play for a ‘big club’ like Chelsea.

‘Mudryk doesn’t start, why is that!? Maybe the boy is not ready, or the system doesn’t fit him and he wants to play a different position – I don’t know,’ former Chelsea defender Gallas told Genting Casino.
‘That’s why I said I felt some owners are just spending money because they have money to spend and they don’t even know if the players are going to suit the squad. At the moment, I don’t know what has happened to Mudryk.’
‘I have nothing against Cucurella, I don’t know him but I respect him,’ Gallas added.
‘This is on CHELSEA though, not even the players. If you invest so much money into one player and they come to join one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League, normally they are playing for their national team.
‘He is not even in the Spanish national team! So maybe Chelsea is too big for him, maybe he doesn’t have that quality to be there.
‘That is why, for me, the problem lies with the club, not the players. You have to buy players that are ready to play for the biggest clubs and who have the quality to play for the biggest clubs.
‘They will have the capacity to deal with all the pressure, it’s simple really. They bought too many players, and for so many of those players I don’t know what they are doing there, they are not ready.’
