Hakim Ziyech has been in and out of the team under Thomas Tuchel, and he has mostly been out of the team than in.
The Moroccan star has admitted that things are different compared to when Frank Lampard was in charge of the club. Ziyech has also hailed the job done by the new boss.
Asked how he is faring under Tuchel, Ziyech told Chelsea’s Unscripted show: “It’s different, different than we’d had the last six months [under Frank Lampard]. He’s bringing his own vision.
“I think his statistics say it all, so it goes well for everybody. We are doing what we have to do and winning a lot of games, we’re playing good football. So I think everybody at the club is happy with his journey here.”
Ziyech also admitted that he’s working hard in training and believes in his ability to be at the top of his game.
On his struggles of adapting to life at Chelsea, and the injury setbacks he has faced, Ziyech continued: “Before I came I had been out for seven months mostly. I came here and started with injuries, so for me it was more that I was already behind everybody physically.
“So the way to work hard and coming back to the physical point where I’m normally at, and then still trying to go one step further, it takes some time.
“I’m always the type of guy that always believes in myself, I always work hard in training. It’s not always that it comes out in games, but I’m working hard every day on it. I know what I can do and I always trust in myself.”
He added: “It’s always about believing in yourself. Of course you have some points where some things worry you, but you have to be mentally stronger.
“I’m still learning every day to be mentally stronger. I’m always thinking that things happen for a reason, that something better will come after that time. I always believed in that and have that mindset and the only thing I can do is try to stay calm and work as hard as I can.”
