Hakim Ziash, the new Chelsea player, expressed his anger at the decision to cancel the Dutch league, and his club Ajax Amsterdam was not considered a champion for the competition despite its lead, describing the move as “nonsense.”
The Dutch Confederation confirmed in its announcement on Friday evening that this decision was taken by voting, and it also included stopping the movement of ups and downs in the league for this season, and confirming the arrival of Ajax and Alkmaar to the Champions League according to their presence in the first and second places before the activity ceased due to the outbreak of the Corona virus.
And the Moroccan international said in statements carried by the British newspaper “Daily Mail”: “What nonsense have you heard? We are at the forefront in all cases. All the stories that say that Alkmaar deserves the title because they overcame us twice, are just empty words, damn you.”
“Where did the goal difference go? Do you not count it now? How did Alkmaar become the champions in 2007? In the same way, with a single goal difference from Ajax.”
Ajax is ranked first with 56 points, while Alkmaar is second with the same score, and the conflict between the two teams has intensified over the season, although Ziyash’s comrades lost against their chaser back and forth.
And the Moroccan international player born in the Netherlands signed last February a 5-year contract that begins next season with the London club, as the London club will pay 40 million euros for the services of the 27-year-old, and despite the spread of Corona, Ziash confirmed that he will wear the blue shirt at the beginning of July.
The midfielder will leave Ajax after 4 years, during which he will become the club’s icon.
Ziyash joined Ajax in 2016, coming from the Dutch “Taftenah” song for 11 million euros, and since then has played 160 official matches with the team, scoring 49 goals.
