Chelsea newcomer Hakim Ziyech has confirmed his arrival from Ajax all the way back in February and it has been a long wait for the 27-year-old to play a competitive game for the Blues.
Ziyech did play his part in Chelsea's friendly against Brighton & Hove Albion last Saturday, wowing supporters with his incredible pass that eventually saw Timo Werner open the scoring on the south coast.
While he has all the attributes to be a huge success in the top flight over the coming years, ex-Chelsea man Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes that he may struggle physically to begin with.
"Hakim Ziyech is very creative, has an excellent left foot, is very good at set pieces and I expect a lot of assists from him,"
the Dutchman said.
"He’s got that aura around him in that he wants the ball. He wants that responsibility, he’s not afraid to score goals.
"Physically, he’ll possibly have a problem in the beginning, so he has to be smarter with his physical ability.
"But he is a silky, beautiful player and something that Chelsea don’t have – a midfielder with a left foot who can bring something different."
