​Van der Vaart urges Ziyech to leave Chelsea after RB Salzburg cameo

Dutch legend Rafael van der Vaart has told Hakim Ziyech to leave Chelsea at all costs.

The Moroccan has struggled to find his best form since leaving Ajax for the Stamford Bridge club two years ago.

Ziyech did want to move back to Ajax or join AC Milan in the summer, but no deals materialised.

“Of course, he never really has a smiley face, but now you can see from everything that he is not having a good time,” Van der Vaart told Ziggo Sport after Ziyech played ten minutes against FC Salzburg in the Champions League group stages.

“I hope he goes to a club where he can just play and not worry about anything else.

“Ziyech is a boy that always has to play when you get him. Then you can say that Chelsea have so many good players, but guys like him do not like to sit on the bench.”
