Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori turned 23 on Saturday, and the official Chelsea FC Instagram page wished him a happy birthday with a throwback that aimed a little dig at Hakim Ziyech.

Chelsea and Ajax met in the group stage of the Champions League last season, and Ziyech was an Ajax man at the time.

Tomori had a good game against Ajax at the Cruyff Stadium, which Chelsea won 1-0 away from home.

There was a funny incident which happened in that game, as Tomori did a skill past Ziyech, and the official Chelsea Instagram page did a throwback to wish Tomori a happy 23rd birthday.

Tomori responded to the post: “Love you always bro.”

To which Ziyech replied: “only because it’s your birthday I accept it.”

Meanwhile, Tomori may have to leave Chelsea on loan in the January transfer window, having been unable to get game time this season.
