Hakim Ziyech has been one of the best players in the Chelsea team in recent games, and put in man of the match performances against Sheffield United and Burnley.
Ziyech took that same rich form to his national team, as he starred in Morocco’s 4-1 victory against Central African Republic in their African Cup of Nations qualifier.
The 27-year-old was directly involved in three of Morocco’s four goals against CAR, and Chelsea fans just can’t believe the kind of player the Moroccan is.
One fan commented: “This guy is unreal.”
Another lauded him as the new Cesc Fabregas, with another saying “Ziyech is too good”.
A Chelsea fan also commented in reference to his left foot: “That left leg is something else.”
Another fan in awe said: “Ziyech makes football look so easy at times, assisting looks second nature to him😂🔥. I think I’ve mentioned him far more times than any other player this week but we’ve got a 🧙and a special player on our hands”
Meanwhile, it’s not only Chelsea fans who have been impressed with Ziyech, as former Blue Cesc Fabregas, was full of praise for him.
“He’s a very good player,” Fabregas tells 90min during an interview with Red Bull. “He has this vision that you need in a top team like Chelsea, who want to win and be champions.
“You could see that they were lacking ideas last season and maybe at the beginning of this season, but with Ziyech, you can see that he has this last pass. It’s not only that he sees it, it’s that he makes it right, at the right time. That’s the decision-making that we talk about nowadays.
“Why are coaches so tactical? Because they see the decision-making of the players is not that good, so they always need to teach them what to do. Before, I believe that coaches were not as on top of the players as they are now, they felt that maybe there was not as much need because the players already saw it themselves, but I believe that Ziyech is one of these players.”
