And his old boss Erik ten Hag has told Lamps: “Sometimes he is a trainer’s nightmare, but you have to give him space.

“Hakim is ‘what you see is what you get’. You see what his emotions are doing to him today.

“It is an emotional day for Hakim, but I hope he looks back on it in a good way.

“He comes in as a big man at Chelsea, a top club in Europe. That is the example for the younger players here.

“First become the best here, win titles and then take the step.

“He is a character, headstrong. But that also makes him brilliant.

“He sees things that others don’t see.”

Ziyech helped Ajax to the Champions League semi-finals last season and the Europe League final the year before that.

The Moroccan will join up with the Lampard’s Blues squad next month after first completing his transfer in January but being allowed to stay on at Ajax for the rest of the season.

He is not able to play any matches in the Premier League this season.

Ziyech told the Ajax FC website after his final training session: “It feels strange, but the realisation is now that it is really the last time.

“I have always felt at home here. The championship, the cup win, but also the little things and the humour on the training field.

“I’m going to miss it all. And the boys, they are not really team-mates anymore, but friends.”

The African scored 46 goals in 148 appearances for the Dutch giants.
