CHELSEA ace Mykhailo Mudryk trolled Ukraine team-mate and Arsenal star Oleksandr Zinchenko by telling him London is "blue".
Mudryk almost joined Zinchenko at the Emirates in January but the Blues hijacked the move and so the winger went to Stamford Bridge following a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk that could rise to £97million.
The 22-year-old is now focused on the West Londoners and insists that when it comes to club football there is no love lost between him and his fellow Ukrainian.
Mudryk told Sky Sports when asked what colour London is: “Blue.”
However, the Ukraine international insists Zinchenko helped him adjust to his new life in London despite their clubs' rivalry.
The two of them continue to take friendly swipes at each other but remain on the same page.

Mudryk added: "He helped me a lot.
“I like him so much. We often joke about Arsenal, Chelsea and what colour is London.
“But I like this guy, he’s very funny, very kind guy. We spend some time with him and always in positive vibes.”
Zinchenko insists there is no reason to look back at all the drama surrounding Mudryk's recent transfer saga.

The full-back wanted the ex-Shakhtar star to join him at Arsenal but now admits he has to focus on Chelsea.
Zinchenko said: "I told him: 'It’s gone already, it doesn’t matter what you wanted, what the other guys wanted.
"'Now you’re a Chelsea player, you signed a long-term contract and you have only one option, only one way, direct and forward'.
“Unfortunately he didn’t become an Arsenal player – as I wanted personally! – but it’s life.”
The two stars are expected to be in action on Sunday when England host Ukraine at Wembley for their Euro 2024 qualifier.
