Graham Potter, the current coach of the London club Chelsea, is struggling to find the right formula.
After having taken the place of the German Thomas Tuchel on the bench following the bad results in particular in the championship. The English technician fails to straighten the bar.
The least we can say is that the results do not plead in its favour. He had in his possession a plethoric workforce, but Bohely the new owner nevertheless took out the checkbook and lined up the recruits.
The Atlas Lion Hakim Ziyech had already tasted the bench under Tuchel more than reason, but with the arrival of Potter he did not tread the lawns anymore… at least until his Qatari adventure.
On his return Graham Potter changed tack and took advantage of the good form of the Moroccan winger. Despite some less prominent performances, he mostly gave very good copy when playing.
So much so that today and despite the arrival of recruits who made the Moroccan one of the starters in the winter transfer window, he made his coach change his mind.
Graham Potter informed his management that he wanted to keep his Atlas Lion. Making him a starter almost every game.
Let’s hope that the wheel is finally turned for Ziyech, and that he can silence his detractors whether they are English or otherwise.
