Tuchel Accepts Blame For Ziyech Struggles

Chelsea Coach Thomas Tuchel has revealed the reasons behind Hakim Ziyech‘s bit-part role under his tutelage at Stamford Bridge.

The former Ajax star has only started two games under the new coach and it has been reported that he is unhappy at Stamford Bridge.

Ziyech joined Chelsea in the summer from Ajax following his impressive performances for the Dutch side.

“It is my fault actually, not his, 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,” Tuchel said in a press conference.  

“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 the 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.

The 27-year-old has made 19 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions this season scoring two goals.
