Chelsea's head coach has expressed his opinion about the form of Mikhail Mudrik since the Argentine took over as the club's head coach.

Ukrainian Mikhail Mudrik is starting to justify the £89 million paid for him by the English club to acquire the Donetsk Shakhtar forward. Mudrik has been gaining excellent form, and Pochettino believes that a key turning point was the return of his self-confidence and further adaptation to the club.

"In three months [since Pochettino took over as head coach], he is not an entirely different player because we are not magicians, but he is a different person.

We are beginning to understand how wonderful this guy is. He is so sensitive and intelligent. We understand the importance of giving self-confidence and trust to him. When people are trusted, they can be open and start showing their talent in football.

Misha [Mudrik] has very good relationships with the team, the coaching staff, the medical staff, and the club. This is a significant improvement."

Mudrik undoubtedly had a tough start in London. However, thanks to Pochettino's arrival in the summer, Chelsea fans are finally beginning to see glimpses of the talent possessed by the 22-year-old forward.

Chelsea's next match is set to take place today against one of the Premier League leaders, Arsenal.
