Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech has told the club’s coach, Thomas Tuchel, that he is happy to play right wing or midfield ahead of their FA Cup fifth round tie against Barnsley on Thursday night in Oakwell Stadium.


Ziyech also said that he is happy to fit in anywhere as long as he has regular minutes under Tuchel.


The Moroccan international has been plagued by injury since his £33 million to Chelsea from Ajax last summer.


The winger has already seen a change of direction at Stamford Bridge, with Frank Lampard sacked and replaced by Tuchel last month.

Tuchel included Ziyech in Chelsea’s starting lineup for their draw with the Wolves, but the 27-year-old couldn’t even make the squad against Burnley.


Ziyech has been an unused substitute in the Blues’ last two games against Tottenham and Sheffield United.

“You know what can happen if the results are not good enough. It is not the first time I have seen a coach fired, “Ziyech told Dutch media Ziggo Sport.


“We will have to see what kind of system [Tuchel] favors. I don’t care if I play on the right wing or in the middle, as long as I can play. For me, that’s the main thing.


“I always have faith in myself. I know what I can do and I won’t push myself. The best of Hakim Ziyech is yet to come.”
