Denis Zakaria impresses with goal in Chelsea debut against Dinamo Zagreb

Last night’s Champions League game between Chelsea and Dinamo Zagreb was Denis Zakaria’s debut since moving to the West London club. The midfielder scored half an hour into his debut, and provided a very strong presence in midfield throughout the game. 

His first start provided the team with a physical presence that they have been lacking in midfield for a long time. His ability to score goals from the central position is also a breath of fresh air. 

Denis Zakaria scores on Chelsea debut 

After patiently and professionally waiting for his opportunity, the Swiss international has finally found his breakthrough. “Chelsea fans are amazing. I’m very excited, I’m very happy and it’s important for me to play a good game,” Denis Zakaria said after the game. 

“I left Juventus to play and I waited for my chance… the manager said play like you did in training. I did my best”. 

Following his impressive performance, it seems unlikely that the loan from Juventus will be terminated. In fact, it could lead to many more opportunities in the first team, with Graham Potter positively influenced as well. 

Chelsea have an option to make the loan move permanent worth €28 million. And it now remains to be seen whether he can seal a regular spot under Potter, after a difficult initial spell.
