believes his Chelsea teammate can become one of the best players in the world.
The Ukraine international has struggled since joining Chelsea in an £89 million deal from Shakhtar Donetsk in the January transfer window.
But the winger finally got off the mark in his 21st appearance on Monday night as he scored Chelsea’s opener in their 2-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Colwill provided the assist for Mudryk’s first Chelsea goal and the defender is confident the Ukrainian can flourish at Stamford Bridge after a difficult start.
‘He’s a great player,’ said Colwill.
‘He can be one of the best in the world.
‘He’s got everything you want as a winger and as a player. It’s tough coming in from to . There’s a lot of pressure that he may not have experienced, a different culture and other things together.
‘It was always going to be tough to hit the ground running but in the first half he was amazing. I’m so happy for him, you could see in the celebrations. He deserved that.
‘Everyone can see the qualities he has and we see it all the time in training.
‘He’s such a good player and to come here and bring it in the first half was amazing. Now it’s about kicking on from here and, hopefully, he can build on it and become a great player.’
