Glen Johnson warns Chelsea against selling “amazing player” in January


Former Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson has urged Chelseato hold on to Hakim Ziyech despite interest from FC Barcelona.

Glen Johnson joined Chelsea at the age of 18 from West Ham United. He spent three years with the Blues but was unable to hold on to a first-team spot. After spending three years at Portsmouth, Johnson established himself as one of the best right-backs in England. He eventually moved to Liverpool in a £18.5 million deal back in June 2009.

Hakim Ziyech has failed to make the kind of impact that was expected of him after his €40 million move from Ajax in February 2020. Last season, he managed just 15 EPL starts, during which Ziyech scored two goals and had three assists.

The Moroccan international finds himself struggling for gametime again this season He has scored twice and has four assists across 14 appearances this season. With the likes of Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi and Kay Havertz all competing for gametime with Ziyech, his struggles are expected to continue.
