According to former Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal, Chelsea’s latest signing Hakim Ziyech is a special player.

The 27-year-old is expected to join up with his new team-mates on July 1 after Ajax’s season ended prematurely as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

Van Gaal said: “He has developed tremendously at Ajax. Not so much in creativity, but as a team player.

“The public has come to realise that he works very hard for a creative player. And then he also scores goals and gives assists.

“That makes you a special player.”

Ziyech was named Ajax Player of the Year for the third consecutive season having scored 8 goals and provided 21 assists in 35 matches this season for Ajax.
