SNAPPED: Ziyech sees Chelsea win - 'means a lot to be here'

Former Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech is excited to now be a Chelsea player.

Ziyech was at Stamford Bridge last night to see his new teammates defeat Norwich City.

"When you are a young guy you always want to play for a big club, in the Premier League of course," he told chelseafc.com.

"When I was young, the players that played here, it was always a big club so I am very happy and it means a lot.

"I was playing in the youth in Heerenveen and here was playing Drogba, Lampard, Terry, all those big names. We were always for Chelsea, and if you look at now, if you can play here it means a lot to me."
