The Moroccan winger has played a crucial part in his side’s qualification to the World Cup quarter-finals.

Morocco international Mustapha El Haddaoui believes Hakim Ziyech will benefit from a possible move to Manchester United.

Despite showing glances of brilliance, Ziyech has failed to live up to expectations since moving to Chelsea in 2020.

The former Ajax star also suffered from a period of exile from the Moroccan national team due to his problems with former boss Vahid Halilhodzic.

However, he returned from retirement to play for the Atlas Lions under Walid Regragui in Qatar.

The result has been nothing short of miraculous. Morocco stunned Spain to reach the quarter-finals on Tuesday as Ziyech displayed another impressive performance.

Speaking about his teammate, El Haddaoui encouraged Ziyech to change clubs.

“He has to change of air because over there, [Chelsea] don’t trust him. Now he is coming back very strong,” he said.

“His problem with Vahid, who didn’t want to call him, disturbed him. In the national team, when there is a FIFA date, everyone joins their selections. He stays there [in London] and it went around in his head.

“He sees that among the others who are with him at Chelsea, who go to the national team, he is of the same level, even superior, and he has lost a little bit of confidence.

“The coach who was there or the one who arrived afterwards didn’t have much confidence in him.

“Afterwards, when you don’t play, you lack playing time, you lack motivation, and you lack timing in the match. Now we see his potential, we see what he is capable of, but he has many offers.

“He has to move from Chelsea or go to Manchester United because the Ajax coach wanted him, he had him in his team. But he will bounce back. But now he has to leave during the transfer window.”
