Chelsea manager Potter reassures winger about his starting lineup

Hakim Ziyech, a winger for Morocco at the World Cup, has been told by Chelsea manager Graham Potter to practice patience while waiting for a chance to start regularly for the Blues.

Potter stated that Ziyech’s performance during the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup had pleased him.

Since the September management change, Ziyech has been relegated to a bit-part role under Potter and has yet to start a Premier League game.

The former Ajax player, who has recently been linked with a move to AC Milan, has only made three appearances since Potter replaced Thomas Tuchel as head coach, but he was excellent for Morocco as he assisted the Atlas Lions in becoming the first-ever African team to get to the semifinals.

He’s been a little bit absent from the starting XI, but he has been engaged in the games, Potter remarked at a press conference before Chelsea’s Premier League match against Bournemouth on Tuesday.

“He entered the first game as a substitute. We are aware of his strengths and admire him as a player. He excels at playing outside the lines and displayed these talents at the World Cup.

“We can talk all we want, but there will likely always be good players who aren’t in the starting XI. You must exercise patience.

“I am thrilled for him, I kept in touch with him over the World Cup,” he continued. I’m happy for him that he was able to play and support his team. He is a decent man who possesses quality.
