Goodbye I know you hate Chelsea as Hakim Ziyech spotted laughing with Eric Ten Hag after 4-1 defeat at Old Trafford
Hakim Ziyech’s attitude towards Chelsea has been questioned after the Blues were pumped 4-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford.
United ran riot with goals from Casemiro, Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford and secured Champions League football next season.
Chelsea scored a late consolation through Joao Felix but it was another miserable outing from Frank Lampard’s side, who are 12th in the Premier League going into their final game at home to fourth-placed Newcastle.
But one player didn’t appear to care in the slightest afterwards. Ziyech, a £33.4 million signing from Ajax in 2020, hasn’t made a single start ever since Lampard became interim boss.
His last appearance from the off came against Spurs in February and he has been reduced to short cameos off the bench in recent times.
He got eight minutes against United before swapping shirts with Tyrell Malacia and laughing and joking with Erik ten Hag, who coached him at Ajax.

Ziyech was set to join Paris Saint-Germain on transfer deadline day before the deal reportedly collapsed due to the wrong paperwork being sent by Chelsea.
And fans think the Moroccan had the look of someone who has lost interest on Thursday night.
One wrote: “Ziyech grabbing Malacia’s shirt and going straight down the tunnel after a little chat with Ten Hag killed me he actually hates Chelsea.”
A second opined: “After blocking that move to PSG and not giving him more minutes as promised he has every right to hate them!”
A third said: “He despises Chelsea. Don’t blame him tbf.”
While another stated: “Free this man from Chelsea he deserves way too much better.”
A fifth weighed in: “Player doesn’t like club who royally f***ed up his transfer, thus forcing him to stay for 6 more months??? SHOCK.”
Ziyech signed a five-year deal at Chelsea and has two years remaining on his current contract. But it looks incredibly unlikely that he will be at Stamford Bridge next season.
The 30-year-old has made 106 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 14 goals.
