Chelsea playmaker Hakim Ziyech has disclosed why he was given the nickname ‘the wizard.’
Ziyech became one of the most influential players at Ajax over the past few seasons, winning the club’s player of the year award three consecutive times in three seasons.
The Moroccan international has brought quality to Chelsea squad this season, but has missed more games than he would like due to injury.
He told the club’s official website: “I played one game in Ajax and I played a good game and after the game, the day after, one of the guys from the social media of Ajax posted something with that name and from that moment, people started calling me like that.
“Even now, I remember when I left Ajax and I came here but I was back in Holland a couple of times back, I was walking on the street and people called me the wizard.
“And people always use that wizard emoji on social media.”
