Chelsea newcomer Hakim Ziyech has revealed how Frank Lampard convinced him to join the Blues. Ziyech was one of the several new signings that the Blues welcomed during the summer transfer window.
During this season, the 27-year-old has made just 2 appearances as he suffered a knee injury.
"We spoke on the phone," Ziyech said. "The way he [Lampard] was speaking about the game impressed me.
"For me also the most important thing was playing football. At that point he was just speaking about football and about his idea of the game. It was clear for me."
Ziyech added: "I could not be any prouder [when he signed for Chelsea]. When you grow up, you always have a dream.
"For every young footballer, you want to play in the Premier League or in big competitions. For me it was a really proud moment to sign for Chelsea."
