Hakim Ziyech has described Christian Pulisic as a ‘crazy’ winger and admits he can’t wait to finally link up properly with the new Chelsea forwards. The 27-year-old has had a difficult start to life with the Blues, picking up a knee injury in the pre-season match against Brighton & Hove Albion. Ziyech finally made his Premier League debut as a late substitute in the 3-3 draw to Southampton, while also having a cameo in the Champions League stalemate with Sevilla. But the winger admits he doesn’t care where he plays in the team and he is keen to start gelling with the new talent at the Blues.
Hakim Ziyech said “For me it doesn’t matter where I am playing it is just the way I love to play the game, and it doesn’t matter where, Kai and Timo are two big talents, they have proved it at their clubs before. Christian is one of the biggest talents. They have a lot of quality. Christian has been here a season longer, and you can see what he is capable of doing on the pitch. He is a crazy winger. It is really exciting to work with them and I can’t wait to be on the pitch, fully fit and doing our thing. For me [being fully fit] can’t come soon enough, but if you think realistically I’ve been out for a while, the season stopped early for me last year, so I didn’t play for a while as well. The injury came at an unlucky time, so for me it’s now important just to get rhythm back and build up everything again. I know it will take some time, but for me it couldn’t be soon enough. It is what it is right now, it’s most important for me to build and get to 100 per cent fitness, and that’s what we’re working to.”
