Ex Dutch stars, Marco van Basten and Dirk Kuyt have come out to blast Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel for his handling of Hakim Ziyech. Basten recently suggested that Chelsea’s new system does not fit the 28-year-old playmaker.
According to him, Ziyech is too good to be rotated by Thomas Tuchel, and it just feels like he is currently not at the right place in his career.
He added that Werner plays really badly for Chelsea but the manager keeps giving him the chance to play himself into form.
His words, “Ziyech again on the couch. When he gets in, that’s like a striker. He can do that too, because he is just a good player. I am sad to see rotation… He’s just not in the right place.”
“That Werner plays really badly, but doesn’t he come in much more often? The system this trainer plays is just not good for Ziyech. Then as Ziyech you have to say: ‘You know what? I have to plead.”
“It is now about Ziyech because I have nothing to do with that man. This is not getting along like that. I’m not saying it’s bad for Ziyech or bad for that trainer, but it doesn’t work like that.”
Kuyt added, “He scored in that FA Cup match against Manchester City. Then you think: well, he’s through it.”
“The next game: boom, on the bench. Then you look at Werner, who can do whatever he wants. He plays over and over. He scored against West Ham, but he could have made one more.”
