Boskamp: Ziyech must adjust if Chelsea sign Sancho

Dutch coach Jan Boskamp feels Hakim Ziyech will have to adjust to a new role when he joins Chelsea next season.

The Ajax midfielder will move to Chelsea this summer for a fee rising to €44m.

And Boskamp says: “Everyone says he has to come in from the right at Chelsea, but they have forgotten one thing: they also want Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund).

"So I hope that Ziyech will play in another position where he can get the ball down.

"At Ajax he comes in from the right, but at Chelsea the intensity and duel power is much higher than in the Dutch league. The pace is higher. If you see how he played against Chelsea, that should not be a problem."
