Senior Son Heung-min, “150 billion won freshman, not Casemiro-Rodri”
Enzo Fernandez, who is wearing a Chelsea uniform with the highest transfer fee in the English Premier League (EPL), is already suffering from harsh criticism.
Former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy said in an interview with British media ‘Talk Sports’ on the 4th (local time) 메이저놀이터, “Fernandez is not a player worth 100 million pounds (about 150 billion won). He is not Rodri (Manchester City) and Casemiro (Manchester United).”
Fernandez confirmed his transfer to Chelsea on the 1st (Korean time) before the market closes this winter, recording a transfer fee of 121 million euros (approximately 163.4 billion won). The highest transfer fee ever in the English Premier League (EPL).
He made his debut in the last EPL round 22 home game against Fulham. Fernández made his passable debut, but was unable to secure a win in a 0–0 draw.
Due to his highest transfer fee, it is naturally inevitable to be compared to league-top midfielders Rodri and Casemiru. In order for Fernandez to get rid of harsh criticism and bullshit, he must follow both individual performance and team performance.
