Chelsea attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech has revealed he’s feeling free and fresh after recovering from a shoulder injury he sustained in the Super Cup victory over Villarreal.

Even though the issue didn’t keep him out for long, the forward was troubled by the limitations of the strapping he had to wear, which he is grateful is no longer required.

“I had a rough time with this shoulder injury but since I took the strap off, I feel more free,” Ziyech said as quoted by Chelsea’s official website. “It was hard because it still blocks your movement a bit.

“Normally I’m used to being free in my body movements and this kind of thing held me back but now I’m feeling free and fresh.

“I just have to keep going with what I’ve been doing in the last weeks and that’s what I’m trying to do every game. I’m enjoying it because you always want to be decisive with goals and assists.”
