Everton flop Andy van der Meyde has criticised Hakim Ziyech’s decision to join Chelsea.
According to Van der Meyde, Chelsea isn’t a top club and he believes Ziyech should have joined Bayern Munich instead.
Van der Meyde said, according to SoccerNews.nl: “It’s time for him to leave. Hakim is ready, he has to take the next step.
“The Eredivise is a training party for Ziyech. It makes sense that he looking for a new team. You need that as a top athlete.”
“I just didn’t expect him to go to Chelsea,” added the former Dutch international winger.
“I don’t think it’s a top team nor a stable club. I would have expected Bayern Munich or something of that size.
“Of course, it could be the hierarchy under below Liverpool changes if Manchester City are really punished and maybe Chelsea will benefit from it and they will play for the prizes, but then again, if they play, I don’t think: ‘Wow, I’ll stay at home and watch’.”
