Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana has sent a message to his friend and teammate Hakim Ziyech, to destroy everything when he moves to the Premier League.

Ziyech will be a Chelsea player from July 1, with the Blues having completed his signing in February.

Onana who has also been linked with a move to Chelsea has admitted that he understands Ziyech’s decision to leave the Dutch giants at this time, and admits that Ajax will be losing a top player.

“When he leaves [Ajax], we will lose the most brilliant player on the team. It will not be easy,” Onana told Dutch outlet NOS.

“He was already here when I got here. I can understand why [he is leaving]. I understand his choice.

“I am happy for him and proud of what he has done for this club. I wish him the best of luck. He’s going to destroy everything [in the Premier League].”

Ziyech recently won the Ajax Player of the Year award for the third time in a row, for his feat in the Dutch league this season.

In 35 games across all competitions for Ajax, the 27 year old Moroccan international scored 9 goals and provided 18 assists.

In 2018/19 he was named in the UEFA Champions League squad of the season after helping Ajax to the semi-finals.

Ziyech has been capped 32 times for Morocco, scoring 14 goals.
