"I feel at home here and can play a lot," said Ziyech. "I think Sevilla is on the same level as Ajax and I do not change Ajax for nothing.

"The right club has not yet made an offer, so I'll stay with Ajax for the time being and do my best in the field."

"I think everyone understands each other very well. It's a great team. We have fun and you should not give it up for nothing. You should not leave because you left. It must be something that you fully support. "
