Fans stunned after Dutch Icon Van Bastan has told £200,000-a-week star to leave Chelsea in the summer
Marco van Basten has urged Hakim Ziyech to leave Chelsea this summer as Thomas Tuchel is the ‘wrong’ manager for him
Ziyech was one of the big signings from Frank Lampard last summer after establishing himself as one of the most creative, attacking and best wingers in world football, and to be honest, many Chelsea fans expected big things from the former Ajax star.
However, injury and a lack of form has seen Ziyech feature in just over half of Chelsea’s league matches, and he is struggling to get the starts at the club that he would like under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel.
And Van Basten believes Ziyech should seek to leave the Blues this summer as he did not join the club to sit on the bench: ‘Ziyech again on the bench,’ said Van Basten.
‘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 [to leave]. ‘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.’
Ziyech is a man that has struggled to keep fit this season and will surely want to stay in the summer to prove that he does have the ability to play for one of the big clubs in world football.
It would be a shock to see him depart the Bridge in the summer.
