• Moroccans Abroad: Tensions Flare between Hakim Ziyech and Ajax Amsterdam Club

    (Morocco World News) Rabat – Is Hakim Ziyech on the verge of leaving Ajax Amsterdam?

    While Ziyech’s future remains a mystery, his relationship with his club has deteriorated.

    The Atlas Lion was not happy to hear that the Dutch club replaced the number 10 jersey he always wore with number 22. The Moroccan football player learned of it through Ajax’s official website.

    The Dutch club is not sure it will keep Ziyech, who has been rumored to possibly transfer to AS Roma, Olympique Lyon, and Arsenal. In the meantime, Ajax decided to give Ziyech’s number to one of their new players, Dusan Tadic.

    The change might help the football player to make up his mind about his future career. Earlier this month, the Moroccan-Dutchman told Dutch outlet 11 Lions that he “is not sure to leave Ajax.” He added, “Football can be unpredictable.”

    Ajax is asking for €23 million to release its midfielder. Earlier this year, Ziyech was named best player of the year in Netherlands’ national league.

    Ziyech chose to represent Morocco’s Atlas Lions when he had the opportunity to join the Netherlands’ team. The football player made his debut with Morocco in a friendly match against Côte d’Ivoire in October 2015.
