Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to hail Hakim Ziyech for his strike against Tottenham Hotspur. He recently had his say while speaking with the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, it is definitely one of the very nicest goals in the EPL so far, and it was also one of the best games the African has ever played in a Chelsea jersey.
Tuchel added the forward is becoming ever-reliable on the pitch and he expects him to get better.
His words, “It was one of his best matches because he was very reliable and to be fair it’s maybe also his best position to have the wide position on the right-wing.”
“That position does normally not exist when we play our 3-4-3 when we have our wing-backs. He was good because it gave him the opportunity to take risks where it’s possible to take risks and he was very reliable on the ball in moments where it was necessary.”
“You can always rely on him in terms of counter-pressing and work-rate for the team so it was well done.”
“He was right behind it. I had the feeling that it was a bit too high but it dropped in the right second and it was a brilliant goal.”
“The build-up was good, the movement around Hakim to bring him into this position, the effort from Callum before the goal, the dribbling, and switch of side around the opponents’ box, the overlap by Azpi and the shot was of course brilliant.”
“It was one of the very nice goals so far. I’m very happy because he deserves it first of all today and it was a very important goal to get the lead.”
