Not many players get to enter the category of world class status, but new Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech is already being hailed as a world-class player.

Ziyech is the kind of player who’s not only known for goals and assists, but his intricate play and mind blowing passes, have made many see the former Ajax star in a new light.

Former Everton star Tim Cahill has revealed that he has been pleased with Ziyech so far and has called him a world-class player.

“It was the Hakim Ziyech show,” Cahill said on BBC’s Match of the Day.

“He was incredible. It’s what he see and the chances he creates for other players. He’s so cultured and there are so many chances that come from his left foot.

“You can understand why he’s world class and why Chelsea have signed him.

“He can score goals and create. He can see a pass. He is always playing forward so the players know he can play them in.

“I am really impressed with him and you will see amazing things from him this season.”
