Lampard warned about nightmare signing Ziyech as new Chelsea signing says goodbyes
Frank Lampard has been warned that he has a “nightmare” on his hands as new signing Hakim Ziyech gets ready to move from Ajax to Stamford Bridge.
Ziyech is easily regarded as one of the finest wingers in the game and has made a real name for himself with Ajax over the past few seasons, but he has decided that a move to the Premier League will help take his game to that next level.
But Ziyech’s old boss Erik ten Hag has told Lamps via Sky Sports: “Sometimes he is a trainer’s nightmare, but you have to give him space.
“Hakim is ‘what you see is what you get’. You see what his emotions are doing to him today.
“It is an emotional day for Hakim, but I hope he looks back on it in a good way.”
Ziyech is tipped to be a very big players for us next season and is a real statement signing, but he is loved by Ajax fans and he has penned an emotional farewell to the club that has made him into the player that he is today.
“The last 4 years were amazing. I don’t even know where to start for expressing how I’ve experienced this journey,” he wrote on Instagram.
“I guess making the Europa League final, making the Champions League semi-final, winning the Johan Cruijff Schaal, winning the KNVB Beker, winning the Eredivisie and becoming football player of the year says enough about how beautiful these years were.
“I want to thank everyone at Ajax for making this next step possible. You have all played a part in my progression over the last years. I hope you are proud of that, at least I’m proud to have worn the jersey of the best team in the Netherlands. Until we meet again.”[the_ad id=”164″]
