Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech has vowed to give Chelsea fans the beautiful football they want while also admitting it might not always be possible.
Asked about the emphasis on bringing joy to the action, Ziyech said: “I think that’s important. I understand that in some games it’s not possible, but I prefer to play beautiful football, to do it in a beautiful way, rather than do it in a hard way.
“But I also understand that, in some situations, it has to go the hard way. There will always be games where things don’t go how they’re supposed to go, and then it has to be done with hard work.
“For my eyes, I prefer to give people what they came to the stadium to enjoy and why they love to watch football.”
