A former Chelsea star claims Hakim Ziyech is a 'copy-cat of Riyad Mahrez' and is being played out of position under Thomas Tuchel.
Ziyech joined the Blues from Ajax Amsterdam after impressing in the UEFA Champions League a couple seasons ago, where the Dutch giants made it to the semi-finals.
However, the Morocco international has been unable to replicate that same form under the previous manager Frank Lampard or Tuchel.
Former Blues defender Frank Leboeuf feels Ziyech should be played in the same position as Mahrez does for Manchester City.
"I’m concerned about Hakim Ziyech," Leboeuf told ESPN.
"If he plays, why doesn’t he [Tuchel] put him on the right?
"I saw him today very frustrated when he came off after playing like a number 10. I don’t think that’s his real position.
"Tuchel really has to think that Ziyech has to play on the right side. It’s like [Riyad] Mahrez, he’s a copy-cat of Mahrez.
"I don’t see [Pep] Guardiola putting Mahrez in another position than on the right side."
