Ajax’s Chelsea-bound star Hakim Ziyech has had his FIFA 20 Ultimate Team revealed, but do any of his current or future teammates warrant a spot in the starting lineup?
After a stunning 2018/19 campaign, many football fans expected to see Ajax’s Ziyech make the move away from Amsterdam. The Moroccan midfielder had helped the Dutch giants to another league title and Champions League semi-final, firing in 21 goals and 24 assists.
He stuck with Ajax through the summer window but it was confirmed in February that the 27-year-old would be joining Chelsea for the start of the 2020/21 season. Like many other footballers, Ziyech appears to be an avid Ultimate Team player – having a strong outfit that many fans will probably envy.
The Moroccan's lineup was posted on the FIFA subreddit after Reddit user veedubburns came across him in a game – noting that Ziyech did what all good players do, skipped the replays.
Like plenty of other professionals who play FIFA, the 27-year-old has his own 99-rated custom card that takes pride of place as the spearhead of his 4-5-1 formation.
Of course, there are a few legends dotted around the team too with names like Zidane, Hierro, Ronaldo, and Gullit showing off their skills.

Unlike some other of his fellow pros, the Ajax star isn’t all about the icon cards – though he does have a few. The Future Stars Lodi and Headerliners Semedo stand out from the pack, but they are cards he could improve on.
As he’s set to join Chelsea, Ziyech could very well pick up a few of his new teammates moving forward, or even find a slot for future manager Frank Lampard. The possibilities are pretty much endless.
