The Moroccan footballer, much to the taste of the Argentine coach, has given a great image in his debut with his team in the World Cup. To be able to sign him, departures are urgent
Hakim Ziyech It is one of the great weaknesses of the coach of the Atletico Madrid. A Simeone who is confirming in the Qatar World Cup the poor performance of some of the main players in his squad. Two very flagrant cases are Rodrigo dePaul Y Yannick Carrasco.
The Argentine midfielder was one of the worst in the painful defeat of Argentina in view of Saudi Arabiawhile the Belgian winger, despite starting in the victory of Belgium in view of Canada, did not have a prominent role either. The two were called to be very important this season in the Atletico Madrid.
Ziyech vindicates himself in Qatar
In this context, let’s return to Atlético’s interest in Ziyech. The Moroccan player has not been able to give the level shown in Ajax after his signing by Chelsea. There are already two seasons without much shine. He is a regular substitute and the London team looks for him to accommodate to reinforce the attack.
The World Cup in Qatar was a perfect setting for the Moroccan to vindicate himself and boy did he do it in the first match. Despite the goalless draw against Croatia, a very active Ziyech was seen, inspired by the controls and driving and very sacrificed in the pressure after loss.
Atlético wants to make room for Ziyech
But if Atlético de Madrid wants to sign a player of the stature of Ziyech, it is clear that they will have to sell before. In this case, the aforementioned Rodrigo de Paul and Carrasco are more outside than inside. Another who could be transferred if an offer arrives is a Thomas Lemar who has not been that player who marveled at AS Monaco either.
Simeone wants to give the team a facelift. Take advantage of the players who are at the level, such as Griezmann, Reinildo or Witsel, to be able to put together a competitive team around them. In this line, the Moroccan Ziyech would give a great leap in quality to Atlético’s attack.
