Ziyech thinks back to Ajax times: ‘Even more than friends I see them as brothers’

Hakim Ziyech has fine words left for his former teammates of Ajax. The Moroccan playmaker, who now plays at Chelsea, has great memories of his time in Amsterdam and his teammates.

For example, Noussair Mazraoui recently made a record of having received much from Ziyechs advice. โ€œEven more than friends I see my teammates as brothersโ€, says the left-wing on a press talk, recorded by Het Parool. โ€œWe have built a good relationship and still have a lot of contact. And it will continue to be that way.โ€
The limitations of the coronavirus mean that Ziyech travels to Amsterdam less often than he would like to. โ€œThe only thing that
s different now is that I dont see them so much anymore, but I still talk to them a lot.โ€
Meanwhile, Ziyech has already established a bond with his new teammates at Chelsea. โ€œThe beginning was a little getting used to, but the transition went very well. People at the club help me find permanent living space so I can settle down. So far everything is going well, even in the dressing room I can agree with everyone. From the beginning I feel very welcome here.โ€
