25-year-old Chelsea player Potter's never used wows in training yesterday, Broja stands applauding him
Denis Zakaria has wowed in footage coming out of Chelsea training yesterday.
Zakaria, who joined the Blues on a season-long loan from Juventus in the summer, has been the forgotten man at Stamford Bridge this year.
The 25-year-old has somehow not played a single minute since Graham Potter took charge despite the new head coach rotating his squad fairly regularly. He didn’t get on the pitch under former boss Thomas Tuchel, too.
As the Swiss midfielder continues to wait for his Chelsea debut, the club have shown a remarkable bit of training footage involving him.
Zakaria wowed in Chelsea training
Chelsea have released a video on the official club website that shows Zakaria at Cobham scoring goal after goal in emphatic fashion. In fact, Blues striker Armando Broja can be spotted next to him applauding his teammate.
The fact the defensive midfielder can’t get on the pitch is puzzling for supporters when they see this kind of training content.
Journalist Ben Jacobs recently claimed Zakaria’s loan at Stamford Bridge could be cut short in January.
If he doesn’t play in the five games before the break for the World Cup, you would totally understand him going back to Juventus.
There’s definitely competition for places in the centre of the park that may hinder game time, but there must be something beneath the surface as to why Zakaria can’t get off the bench.
N’Golo Kante has been on the sidelines through injury for most of the season, so how has the on-loan Blues midfielder not even had a sniff?
It’s great to see the likes of Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Carney Chukwuemeka play under Potter.
Chelsea fans would love some honest answers about Zakaria, though.
