Chelsea fans have been very happy since the Blues confirmed the capture of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax.
Ziyech has been a star player for the Dutch champions and showed what he could do when the two sides met in the Champions League group stage this season.
Ziyech’s stats are phenomenal as he has a return of 48 goals and 82 assists in 160 outings for Ajax. Despite his amazing stats, former Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has warned Chelsea to be careful, insisting that the Dutch league is way different from the Premier League.
“I just think you’ve got to be very, very careful,” Pulis said on The Debate after Ziyech’s transfer to Chelsea was confirmed.
“Dutch football is not Premier League football.
“For all what he’s done and what he’s achieved and if they’re spending that much money you hope and pray that you get it right, but there’s different levels and there’s different levels in respect of the European leagues.
“The Dutch league is a good league, Ajax were fabulous last year and they’ve been good this year, a good group of players and they’ve been unbelievable in respect of bringing good players through.
“But the Premier League is a different animal to the Dutch league.”
