Thomas Tuchel provides updates from Kante & Ziyech
Before the Crystal Palace tie, Thomas Tuchel held his last pre-match press conference on Friday.
When speaking to the media, the German strategist relied on various topics, including Haim Ziyech.
The Moroccan was substituted in the aforementioned Super Cup and then was in the photo using a sling.
However, Tuchel confirmed on Friday that the winger does not need surgery and could be back in two weeks:
“Hakim is sure to miss the game due to his injury. The decision is made that it will be treated conservatively. We don’t need surgery, which is very good news and we hope it continues that way. We hope he comes back in two weeks. “
On a slightly less positive note, N’Golo Kante is said to have “some problems” after the Super Cup match. It was not disclosed what these problems are, but it seems to suggest that the midfielder is a doubt for Saturday.
