Ahead of Ziyech’s arrival in west London, head coach Frank Lampard have been handed a warning by Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
“Hakim is ‘what you see is what you get’. You see what his emotions are doing to him today,” Ten Hag told Ajax TV on Ziyech’s final day of training. “He said ‘I am not a man of club love, but at Ajax it is different’.
“It is an emotional day for Hakim, but [I hope] he looks back on it in a good way.
“He comes in as a big man at Chelsea, a top club in Europe. That is the example for the younger players here. First become the best here, win titles and then take the step.
“He is a character, headstrong. But that also makes him brilliant.
“He sees things that others don’t see. Sometimes he is a trainer’s nightmare, but you have to give him space.
“If they start playing on their responsibility, you see the development. He took Ajax by the hand and we were very successful together.”
According to Werner says “To everyone at Chelsea I’m incredibly happy to be joining the Blues next season! It feels like the right step for me and I am delighted to become a part of Chelsea FC. Really looking forward to playing for such a fantastic and historic club!
See you soon Chelsea fans!”.
