Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Chelsea’s signing of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
The former United defender believes that Chelsea have signed two quality players with Champions League experience.
Ferdinand likened Ziyech to Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez, and admits that Ziyech is a better crosser of the ball. He also looked back at Spurs game against Leipzig and recalls how the new Chelsea striker was a handful for Jose Mourinho’s men.
Ferdinand said: “We watched Ziyech last season for Ajax he was magnificent.
“He reminds me a little bit of [Manchester City star] Riyad Mahrez, but he crosses the ball a little bit more. He’s someone whose always trying to find a way to unlock defences with his delivery, a lot of guile.
“And Timo Werner, his movement and his finishing is phenomenal, we saw what he was like against Spurs. So they’re two talented players that definitely improve them.”
