Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech spoke to Dutch outlet Algemeen Dagblad about the backstory regarding his failed move to the Giallorossi.

Ziyech was just steps away from joining Roma, however, former sporting director Ramon Monchi never closed the operation.

“Sevilla? It is without a doubt a great club, but Monchi wanted to buy me previously when he was in Rome,” he said.

”It seemed like the negotiation was proceeding perfectly and in the right direction when, all of a sudden, he disappeared and I no longer knew anything. Then he asked me to join Sevilla when he returned. However, I was resentful…that’s not how it’s supposed to work”.
