Chelsea have finally reached an agreement to sign the striker from Ajax for £38million.

He will not be making the move until the end of the season – which gives fans plenty of time to learn how to say his name.

Ajax shared a video of Ziyech teaching an interviewer how to properly pronounce his name back in 2017.

And the clip resurfaced on social media after Chelsea announced the signing on Twitter.

The Moroccan ace confirmed that his name should be pronounced like ‘Ziyesjjjj’ rather than Ziyech.

To keep on his good side, fans should ditch the ‘ch’ sound at the end of his name.

Ajax supporters have cheered his name relentlessly this season following his incredible spell of form.

The 26-year-old has racked up eight goals and 21 assists across 29 games in all competitions this season.
