West Ham ignored my Ziyech advice!

Former West Ham midfielder Don Hutchison claims that he told West Ham to keep a close eye on Ajax's Moroccan star Hakim Ziyech "years ago".

Hutchison, who was known to Hammers fan as 'Budweiser' during his two spells at the club - after a photo of him stark naked bar for a bottle of beer placed strategically in front of his genitals was made public - made the claim on social media on Tuesday.

The 48-year-old also insisted that he has informed Crystal Palace of the young star's talents too, although his advice was ignored by both clubs.

Now 26, Ziyech is currently one of Europe's most highly-rated attacking midfielders and starred in Ajax's 4-4 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last night - a game in which the Dutch side ended with nine men after Daley Blind and Joel Veltman received their marching orders.

He scored Ajax's third goal on the night with a free kick from an acute angle that rebounded off the crossbar and into the net via Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga's nose.
