Hakim Ziyech opens up on his move to Chelsea FC from Ajax this summer.
The Moroccan international joined Chelsea in February from Ajax for a deal north of £37million and vowed to do ‘everything in his power’ to bring ‘happiness’ to Chelsea fans.
Before joining the Blues, Ziyech had a decent season in the Dutch league scoring 6 goals and creating 12 assists in 21 games for Ajax.
He also revealed that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard played a pivotal role in convincing him to join Chelsea this summer.
Ziyech said: “It was important in my decision of course.
“I always said that I like the style of playing that he’s using now and the attacking play was for me a big part of my decision to come to Chelsea.”
“I would love to bring my style of play that I have shown the last few years with Ajax.
“Just keeping the same style and hopefully they will enjoy it and of course I hope to help the team as much as possible.
“People always tell me the Premier League is a tough competition. Of course I know it is but I think they always said, ‘you’re physically not ready’ and stuff like that.
“But if you see the competition and how many people have the same body like me, football is just playing with your head, being smart and creating spaces and it’s always in the small things.”
