The Chelsea Player Who Sold Drugs While Growing Up.

Hakim Ziyech

Hakim Ziyech had a very rough childhood as he grew up in a poor household. When Ziyech was 10 years old, he lost his father, and things got worse for Hakim Ziyech and his family.

Hakim was so shocked by the death of his father that he could not even go to school after his father died. He started selling drugs, and he only managed to stay out of prison

Ziyech couldn’t have done it without the help of a man called Aziz Doufikar. Ziyech met Aziz Doufikar, who was the first Moroccan professional player in Dutch football.

Doufikar helped Ziyech concentrate on his footballing career.

In 2012, Hakim Ziyech started his senior career at Heerenveen. His first season was not good, but in the second season he became Heerenveen’s best player and that earned him a move to Twente in 2014. After two years at Twente, he moved to Ajax in 2016 and that was where he impressed the most. Ziyech joined Chelsea in 2020 from Ajax for £38M.

Thankfully, Ziyech was able to move past his bad days, otherwise, he might not be at Chelsea Football Club today.
