Hakim Ziyech still has a bright Chelsea future | Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says it’s his fault that Hakim Ziyech has struggled to find his best form.

The former Ajax forward has played only twice so far under the German coach but Tuchel insists the Moroccan international will get plenty of opportunities in the coming weeks.

“It is my fault actually, not his,” the Chelsea head-coach said of Ziyech. “It is my hard decisions at the moment as well for Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and for Christian Pulisic sometimes in the half positions where we seem the strongest.

“It is the same for Hakim at the moment and for some other players, there were hard decisions to make. It is never easy but it is a good thing, we have quality to make our decisions.

“There are decisions for other players that means Hakim suffers, I can absolutely understand and agree with that so it is my responsibility and fault in this case that he cannot show more of his potential.

“Sometimes you have to wait. He is not the only guy to suffer from these decisions and if he takes care and shows he is ready when he is needed, things will turn around again I am sure.”
