Birmingham City head coach Gianfranco Zola has told the club website that both Kerim Frei and Che Adams will soon get their chance in the first team.
Both Frei and Adams are seen as very exciting young talents for the Blues and players that the club will be able to build around for the future. But with the Blues struggling over the last few months since Zola came into the club, he has had to change things around to make the team more defensive and difficult to beat. This has seen both Frei and Adams dropped from the first team.
But Zola has now said that both Frei and Adams just need to be a bit patient as they will soon be back in the first team. The Italian has said that when the West Midlands side have secured their safety in the Sky Bet Championship, they are currently only six points above 22nd placed club Blackburn Rovers, the youngsters will once again get the time to shine.
He said: “At the moment, the main focus is to defend well because the whole team feels more comfortable with that mind,”
“When they are given the opportunity, I am sure they will give it back. Their commitment is very high.”
