Hakim Ziyech names Chelsea winger as ‘crazy’ as he eyes regular starting spot

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.

The Moroccan was the first of Chelsea’s new summer signings to be bought, actually signing in February before arriving when the transfer window opened.

Since arriving at the club, the Blues also have added to their attacking talents with Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, while Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi are fighting for a spot in the starting XI.

Ziyech has had to sit on the sidelines before being able to take his chance in the side, which could come against Manchester United on Saturday.

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.

“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,” Ziyech said.

“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.
