Hakim Ziyech struggling to integrate at Stamford Bridge
Frank Lampard speaks on the difficulty of getting Hakim Ziyech involved during the ongoing Premier League season
Chelsea Boss, Frank Lampard admits it is “difficult” to get Hakim Ziyech match fit and “integrated” because
of Chelsea’s coronavirus bubble.
Chelsea has seen several players in and out of the side already this season due to injuries, including Hakim
Ziyech and Ben Chiwell.
Hakim Ziyech struggling to integrate, Lampard said of his £36.7million ex-Ajax winger: “It’s been very difficult
to integrate him.
“We have a bubble here at Cobham so we can’t play against the Under-23s or bring over a lot of kids to replicate
11 vs 11 games on big-sized pitches, which is generally where you would want someone to be working when
they’ve not played for five or six months.
“We miss that and we have to find the right way to give Hakim and others in the squad minutes as quickly as we
can.”so we have to do the best we can, train the best we can. Find the right way to give Hakim minutes,
and others in the squad, because a few of our squad did come in with a few issues and try to get that as quick as
we can. That is challenging.”
