Chelsea loanee Zakaria wanted back at former club

Denis Zakaria is struggling to earn favour during a loan at Chelsea, but Borussia Monchengladbach will always find a place for him in their ranks.

That is according to sporting director of the German giants, Roland Virkus, who has left a door open for the Switzerland international midfielder to retrace his steps to Germany. Zakaria is due to spend the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign at Stamford Bridge, having completed a switch from Juventus over the summer, but questions are being asked of his long-term future after seeing just one appearance for the Blues.

Virkus has said when asked about the 25-year-old, who spent four-and-a-half years with Gladbach prior to joining Juve in January 2022: “Of course, we would like to have Zakaria back here. A player like that, who can fix a lot of situations with his pace, would always help.”

Zakaria did open his goal account for Chelsea in his only appearance to date, helping them to a 2-1 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb, but is yet to play a single minute of Premier League football.
