Chelsea midfielder Ziyech 'not satisfied' with Sevilla point

Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech wasn't satisfied with their Champions League opener against Sevilla.

The match marked the former Ajax star's 50th in the competition.

“It was a difficult game, we knew in advance that Sevilla is a good team with quality on the ball. They won the Europa League last year. It was difficult to find the space. All in all, we have a point, we cannot be satisfied with that immediately," Ziyech said.

“It's good for me for now. I especially want to play football, because I was out of it for a number of weeks. Everything is new, so I still have to get used to some things. But I don't put pressure on myself and I know what to do.

"The relationship with my teammates is good, they have made me feel at home.

“I'm not there yet, because I haven't played any matches for a long time. The injury came at an unfortunate time. I try to stay calm and everything will come by itself."

"Fifty? It is of course a dream for everyone to play in the Champions League," Ziyech added. "I am happy that this was already the fiftieth game."
