Ajax attacker Hakim Ziyech scored his first Champions League goal in his side’s first leg last 16 defeat against Real Madrid in Amsterdam on Wednesday night, and his performance didn’t go unnoticed by Liverpool fans on Twitter.
The 25-year-old joined the Dutch giants in August 2016 and has made a huge impact for them, and he has scored 15 goals and provided a further 12 assists in 31 appearances in all competitions for them this term.
The Morocco international finally got off the mark in Europe’s elite club competition on Wednesday against the La Liga giants, and he probably should have had a brace given he missed a glorious opportunity earlier in the encounter.
Meanwhile, Liverpool sometimes seem to lack that creativity in the middle of the park when Jurgen Klopp lines up in a 4-3-3 formation with Philippe Coutinho still yet to be properly replaced, and the versatile Ziyech, who can play out wide or through the middle, certainly has the creative capability to play in a No.10 role for the Reds.
Supporters of the Merseyside outfit were quick to have their say on the African attacker’s latest performance via social media, and while one said “get him to Liverpool asap”, another said “Ziyech needs to be a red”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Hope we get Ziyech and De Light in summer!, #LFC for life

Jurgen Klopp has gotten quite inventive with his excuses this season. FFC’s James Jones think he has no one but himself to blame for Liverpol’s poor form in the video below…
