Ahead of his first game in almost six weeks, images were released of Morocco’s training sessions, showing Ziyech’s knee strapped up.
“He should have stayed to recover,” one Chelsea fan suggested, although another said: “But this bandaged up knee doesn’t mean he’s in some discomfort tbh!”
A third questioned his decision to be allowed to leave for international duty, posting: “I don’t really understand. How can he go to national team when he’s not fit”.
“He needs to regain match fitness somehow, won’t be the first time a player plays with his knee taped up and it won’t be the last,” a Blues fan replied.
“Should be at Cobham”, a fourth claimed. “Don’t aggravate his injury. A fully fit Ziyech is the best for club and country. Patience please,” another concluded.
