Hakim Ziyech’s pointless renaissance ends abruptly

Chelsea had internally agreed that they were going to sell Hakim Ziyech in January, we know that for sure. It was only a matter of admin mistakes that stopped them completing a loan for the Moroccan to PSG.

Ziyech wasn’t happy about that – understandably – but in the first game of February, he was starting. He kept his place for several games following that, holding his first team place throughout February.

That decision was strange – clearly we’re going to sell him and the club see Raheem Sterling, Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke as the future. So what’s the point in using Ziyech when we don’t have a huge amount to play for in the league? It’s not like Ziyech is banging in goals every week.

What makes it even more frustrating is the fact that Ziyech is not in the squad today, and hasn’t played a minute through our winning run. It just emphasises the fact that his February run was a bizarre waste of time.

  1. Absolutely pointless article and as always very wrong. Pointless piece of trashy cheap writing. Do you actyally beleive what you are writing.
    Ziyech like so many players have been used a a scape goat. Stop taking cheap shots and actual try to be fair……. History and stats don’t lie, only so called journalists.

    1. It’s worth adding that, unlike a guy like Auba who is going to have minimal re-sale value, playing guys like Ziyech and Pulisic (players everyone expects to be sold) makes perfect sense if you (a) think they can help you win AND (b) have the opportunity to increase their sale value.

      As DrZ notes, I don’t understand why you take such a glib/thoughtless approach to many of your posts, SuperFrank. Either post less, say less when you do, or out more honest thought behind your “analysis.” As it is, I just skip over at least 50% of your posts because I assume on first glance that it’s garbage masquerading as “news.” The other half of them that I read its 50/50 whether I find you’ve said anything interesting/insightful.
