Rafael van der Vaart: If Tottenham gets him, he could become England champion
Chelsea faced Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Wednesday and Hakim Ziyech was back on the bench. Rafael van der Vaart and Marco van Basten commented on the player.
Previous seasons at Chelsea have been moderately successful for Hakim Ziyech, but this is the worst one so far. The Moroccan is not so bad as it is just not playing. The 29-year-old usually sits on the bench. In the Premier League, he saved 131 minutes on the pitch. In the Champions League – 54. In total, only once – in a league game with Southampton – he was included in the basic squad of “The Blues”.
On Wednesday, the offensive midfielder was once again only among the substitutes as his teammates faced Dinamo Zagreb (2-1).
During the summer transfer window, Ziyech was linked to Manchester United, Milan and Tottenham. Rafael van der Vaart, a former player of the London team, believes that the player should go to him.
– Ziyech has to join Tottenham. If the London club get him, he could win the Premier League. Seriously – admitted the Dutchman on the air of Ziggo Sport.
– The transfer window is approaching. Ziyech is a great player and it’s sad that he doesn’t play. You have to watch someone like that on the pitch. For him, matches are watched on television and they come to the stadium. It is a pity for the whole ball that he is sitting on the bench. If these kinds of players don’t get minutes, it’s not good for football. There should be a rule that clubs can only have a certain number of players. Someone like Ziyech could play for another team and entertain the fans, said Marco van Basten.
