"This isn't the way I wanted to finish the season and say goodbye to Ajax, obviously,” Ziyech told Voetbal International.
“I, and all people around the club, had something great in mind for the coming months. That isn't happening and that's very unfortunate.
"I knew it was over when [Dutch PM Mark] Rutte said there will be no football until the first of September.
“I wanted to end my time here in a good way, with a championship title.
“On the other hand, I immediately accepted it because there's clarity now. The health of all people is more important, after all.
“It is weird. Not just for me, but for everyone in the Netherlands and the rest of the world. I'm quite relaxed to be honest. I try to keep busy and not give over to the crisis.
“Everybody should try to keep doing what he or she is supposed to be doing. I do that by training every day. By doing that I want to make sure that I'm ready to deliver on the field as soon as this is all behind us."
