    Chelsea trolled by ex Ajax ace after Hakim Ziyech’s move

    Former Ajax and Netherlands star Andy van der Meyde has questioned Hakim Ziyech’s decision to join Chelsea, which he believes is not “an important team or a stable club.”

    Last week it was confirmed that Chelsea had signed a £ 36.6 million deal to sign Morocco’s international Ayax Ziyech.

    The 26-year-old, who starred in the Dutch club’s massive run to the Champions League semifinals last season, will become Frank Lampard’s first autograph as a Chelsea manager.

    Van der Meyde says Ziyech is “ready” to play for an elite club, but has revealed his surprise that the director has opted to join the Chelsea Premier League team.

    The ex Ajax and the Dutch ace told the Dutch outlet VTBL: “It is time for him to leave. Hakim is ready, he must take the next step.

    ‘The Eredivise is a training party for Ziyech. It makes sense that he’s looking for a new team. You need it as the best athlete.

    ‘I wasn’t just expecting him to go to Chelsea. I don’t think it’s an important team or a stable club. I would have expected Bayern Munich or someone of that size.

    ‘Of course, it could be that the hierarchy under Liverpool will change if Manchester City is really punished [by UEFA] and maybe Chelsea will benefit from it and will play for the best trophies, but then, if they play, I don’t think, “Wow, I’ll stay home and watch.” “

    Chelsea attempted to sign Ziyech during the January transfer window and boss Blues Lampard says he is happy to secure the Moroccan signature ahead of the summer.

    “Well, I think he’s a fantastic player and it came to my mind for the first time during last season’s Champions League run,” said Lampard.

    ‘He was one of their most important players against Tottenham, of course. And then we ran into him twice this season, so I know a lot about him.

    ‘I know his qualities, he has an excellent left foot, he generally plays right but he can play behind the front man.

    ‘And when you look at us this season there are perhaps games in which we struggled to open the door.

    ‘He is a player that we hope will bring that pinch of creativity, bring something different, score goals and get assistance.’
