Former Chelsea star Khalid Boulahrouz on the reason why Hakim Ziyech has agreed to join Chelsea:
“He is a player who wants to play football forward. With football that fits Ziyech. You can see that in the players around him. Mount, Willian & Tammy promote the vision of Lampard and that is important for Ziyech"
“Even in the Premier League, Chelsea wants to solve everything by playing football. That is also nice for the ordinary football fan. I think the Chelsea before Lampard would have been less suitable for Hakim. Then the football there, as I call it, was not positive"
"Ziyech has been very satisfied with Ajax in recent years and in that period the necessary clubs have also come along. Now at Chelsea he ends up with a team where everything is perfectly arranged and in a city where it is great to live."
