Chelsea boss sends message to fans about Hakim Ziyech

Hakim Ziyech needs more time to adapt to the Premier League.

The Moroccan has suffered a few injury setbacks since his arrival from Ajax in the last summer window.

Ziyech has played around 18 games this campaign and managed to score just two goals and create another four assists.

Now that he is back in full training, Ziyech will be given the chance to play in the first team under new manager Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel said of Ziyech: “For me it’s clear that he needs to adapt to this kind of football, this kind of league.

“He comes from the Dutch league, from a strong Ajax squad but they were the benchmark in the league and it’s not the same intensity and competition as it is here.

“But he’s adapting and he has the certain quality to decide matches and the certain quality to do the unexpected which can give you an extra twist in any game and on level which he proved with Ajax.

“Of course we want to push him to the same level of performance that he showed there and this is our job.”
