Werner signed off his RB Leipzig career in style with a brace over the weekend

“It is an emotional day for Hakim, but I hope he looks back on it in a good way.

“He comes in as a big man at Chelsea, a top club in Europe. That is the example for the younger players here.

“First become the best here, win titles and then take the step.

“He is a character, headstrong. But that also makes him brilliant. He sees things that others don’t see.”

Ziyech bid farewell to his Ajax teammates at the weekend and was named as the Player of the Year in his final season at the club.

He has scored 49 goals in 165 games for the club and expressed his sadness at saying his final goodbyes to his teammates at the weekend.

“It feels strange, but the realisation is now that it is really the last time,” he said.

“I have always felt at home here. The championship, the cup win, but also the little things and the humour on the training field.

“I’m going to miss it all. And the boys, they are not really team-mates anymore, but friends.”

Chelsea have won three out of three matches since football’s resumption, beating Aston Villa and Manchester City in the Premier League whilst securing a 1-0 FA Cup quarter-final victory over Leicester on Sunday.
