Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech has hailed the impact of the Chelsea team under Thomas Tuchel.

The 28-year-old winger has been in and out of the Chelsea team, but has been a key man of late following his recent performances.

Ziyech has revealed that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is very honest with his players and he says it to them as it is — a trait Ziyech loves.

The left-footed star also spoke about a “reasonable bond” he has with Tuchel.

“If there is something, I say it,” he explained.

“And when he thinks something, he says it too. You don’t always have to agree with each other, of course.

“From the moment he came in, he has been honest. Whether it’s in my favourite or not, I’d rather you be honest than try to do it in some other way.

“He has always been sincere, and I appreciate that more than trying to do it in a different way.”
