Van Persie Slams Thomas Tuchel For Using Chelsea Star Wrongly Ahead Of UCL Final

The former Arsenal star believes Tuchel has been using one of his Chelsea players wrongly

Tuchel despite his good jobs at Chelsea still is failing to use one of Chelsea’s super talent rightfully, Van Persie claims.

According to the former Man United striker, Hakim Ziyech is supposed to be handed more important roles in the Chelsea squad.

Ziyech used to be the main man in Ajax before Blues signed him and Van Persie believes he should be made important as well in his new home.

While addressing on the issue, the 37-year-old hinted on Mateo Kovacic being of same calibre with the Moroccan and as such should share same level of involvements in the squad.

Ziyech scored the only goal during one of Chelsea’s encounter with the Cityzens and is keen to find the back of the net again if he is called upon tomorrow.

Tuchel has used Ziyech mostly in an attacking 3 setup where provides collective support to a number 9.

‘It is actually a shame that the creativity of players like Ziyech, [Christian] Pulisic and [Mateo] Kovacic – who I think is a brilliant player – is not being expressed,’ Van Persie wrote.

‘Kovacic is their engine and playmaker. Ziyech also has those qualities higher up the pitch, but he should have a much bigger role in the team.

‘He is now constantly searching [for a place in the team], being played in all different positions. But surely it can’t be that difficult to give such a creative player a good position, right?

‘You can also see it differently, first give Ziyech and Kovacic an important role and then let players like Kante and other types work around them.’
