Chelsea signing Ziyech not worried about Premier League physicality

Chelsea signing Hakim Ziyech has no worries about how he will adapt to the Premier League.

The playmaker officially became a Chelsea player on July 1 after a transfer was agreed with Ajax in February.

Ziyech is not known as a physical player but insists his intelligence will help him thrive in England.

When asked about the physical side of the game, Ziyech told the club's website: "Football is just playing with your head and being smart and creating spaces, and it is always in the small things."

The Morocco international started training at Cobham this week and is excited to play his first-game for the Blues next season.
