Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech as a difference maker.
“I think Ziyech, out of all of them [attacking players signed in the summer], has been the one he’s wanted to bring back most because he brings you that little bit of difference,” Rio Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel Five.
“He brings you that little bit of guile. Havertz has got it but Ziyech is a player. I saw him at Stamford Bridge last season destroy Chelsea, I saw him in the Champions League many times last season.
“He’s the person who always looking for that little pass, that little bit of difference, he plays the hard pass, the risky pass that gets you the big reward. I’m sure the likes of Havertz, Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, they are going to want to play with someone like him because he will put chances on a plate.
“Yes, he was a man of the match at the weekend and Frank waxed lyrical about him after the game saying he was so pleased to have him back because he gives you something different in the team.”
