Chelsea’s new boy Hakim Ziyech has admitted to having a difficult adjustment period to the Premier League.
Asked if he is now comfortable at the club, he told the club’s official website : “Yes, of course. I have now been here six or seven months and I have started to adapt to things more and more.
“At the beginning everything is new and it is nice but I really also love to be around my family and my mother and my brothers and friends, but at this time it is not possible. So after a while it was a little bit difficult but you start to get used to it. I have not met the fans properly yet.
“The fans had a game when they could come to watch and then I got injured after 25 minutes against Leeds! Hopefully, better times will come and everybody will be able to come to the stadium.”
Ziyech has also talked about why he is called the wizard.
He told the club’s official website: “I played one game in Ajax and I played a good game and after the game, the day after, one of the guys from the social media of Ajax posted something with that name and from that moment, people started calling me like that.
“Even now, I remember when I left Ajax and I came here but I was back in Holland a couple of times back, I was walking on the street and people called me the wizard.
“And people always use that wizard emoji on social media.”
