Christian Pulisic told a story in the press this week about joining up with Chelsea, and how he got on the team bus in the dead of night in Japan in the summer tour, with nobody really recognising him or welcoming him.
Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but the opposite seems to be happening with Hakim Ziyech. This summer’s early signing by the Blues hasn’t even physically arrived in England yet, but he’s already getting massively welcomed on Instagram.
He posted a “farewell” post to Ajax, but it was instantly taken over by Chelsea players welcoming him to the club. The top 5 comments ended up being from Blues fans, all in the form of various footballer-favourite emojis.
