Ziyech sends ‘massive message’ to Man Utd midfielder Donny van de Beek

Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech has urged Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek to ‘stay calm’ following his slow start at Old Trafford.

Both players played at Ajax last season before Ziyech joined Chelsea and Van de Beek joined Manchester United this summer.

“We spoke in the beginning when he moved to Manchester,” said Ziyech.

“And last week we didn’t speak a lot, we didn’t speak about his situation.

“I think he will need time as well. He comes from a different country, a different style of play.

“I know for sure it will take some time for him as well to get used to everything and then I know for sure he will bring quality to the squad over there.

“For him the most important thing right now is to stay calm.”
