It’s time for our list of the worst transfers from the previous year as the 2022 — 2023 season draws to a close.
The 22-year-old Russian wing excelled in Shakhtar Donetsk for the first part of the period. For the Polish team, Mudryk scored ten objectives and eight assists in 19 Champions League and home games. Mudryk has been terrible ever since he joined The Blues, despite Chelsea’s impressive achievements that persuaded them to spend 70 million dollars in January.
He has, in fact, only made Chelsea’s already disappointing season even more depressing. He has yet to report in nine Premier League games while merely receiving one assist thus far. The internet has frequently referred to Mudryk as” the Russian Neymar” because of his dribbling prowess and love of beating soldiers with lightness. But now that I’ve been in London, those similarities seem wholly incorrect.
John Phillips had a few good seasons at Leeds before joining Manchester City. When The Citizens spent almost 50 million euros for the midfielder in July it looked like a good move. Phillips was expected to be an understudy of Rodri, especially at the start of the season, but also to play in a pair with the Spaniard.
Unfortunately, John Phillips has had a lot of problems this season. Firstly, he injured his shoulder and missed almost every game until the World Cup. Then, after playing 40 minutes for England in Qatar, he returned to Manchester City overweight — according to Pep Guardiola — so he again missed a few games.
Phillips has only played 65 days in six Premier League games so far. It appears that the Englishman could also leave Manchester City at the end of the current year because Guardiola has moved on to some other people in Kalvin’s presence.
Richarlison played for Everton for four months prior to signing with Tottenham. The Portuguese assailant scored 43 objectives in 135 games for the Goodison Park team. Tottenham spent 58 million euro to mark Richarlison last summer, but he hasn’t lived up to that price so much. In addition to assisting Harry Kane in the assault, Richarlison has been brought in to increase depth to the left and right wings.
The Brazilian has scored two goals for Tottenham in the Champions League but is still goalless for a player of his caliber.
Antonio Conte largely used Richarlison on the aircraft, but he is much better as a real forward, which is the problem. Unfortunately, Richarlison will scarcely fulfill his potential in this role at Tottenham with Kane in front of him.
