Usyk tips Chelsea forward to win Ballon d’Or
Ukraine boxing heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk has tipped Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudrk to win the Ballon d’Or in future.
Mudryk completed a €100million move to Stamford Bridge from Shakhtar Donetsk in January.
The 22-year-old recorded his first assist last weekend in the 3-1 win over Leicester City but is yet to score his first goal for the Blues.
But Usyk is convinced that his compatriot will go on to emulate the achievements of former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.
“I think he’s worth a little more than €100million because I’ve been watching this guy.
“I saw him for the first time playing for the U-18 or U-19 team.
“It seems to me that this guy can bring the fourth Ballon d’Or to Ukraine,” Usyk told Parimatch.
