Eden Hazard has gone on from strength to strength in his career especially at Chelsea as the quick and skillful Belgian has made a good impression on the football world.
With his career currently at a turbulent stage at Real Madrid it’s important to look at what he can do when he is the main man in the team and he can be an extremely important player.
During his career Eden has won two Premier Leagues, one FA Cup and two Europa Leagues first one coming with French side Lille and the second one with Chelsea.
Hazard is currently the captain of the Belgian National team and has won 106 caps whilst scoring 32 goals for his home country.
The position he is in now with Real Madrid is not ideal for the 29-year old, however, we know he has the quality to dust himself off and become even better because let’s forget, he has done that before at Chelsea.
He had nine months without a goal which scuppered his confidence dreadfully, but it was the moment he scored his first goal since his last tat he changed back into the player Chelsea fans knew and loved.
We will now take a look at what the football world has to say about Eden Hazard.
“Does he have the capacity to reach the level of a Messi or Cristiano? Now I say yes, because his evolution is great,”
“He’s faster than Zidane, more technique than Thierry Henry.”
“He can play in any top team in the world, today or tomorrow.”
“After Messi and Ronaldo, Hazard is my favourite player. “I love watching him because he is a player who creates things, and it is often spectacular to see him play.I love the player and that’s all.”
“He is a legend, look at what he achieved in six years at the club. He won the league twice, won the FA Cup, won Player of the Year. We are talking about Eden Hazard. Please! “He brought something that we hadn’t seen for such a long time”.
“Hazard is one of those very talented players that the public loves to see. One of those players who fill the stadiums,”
“Eden Hazard’s definitely at the very top, He’s such an unbelievable player. The more I’ve spent time with him the more I appreciate him as a player, but also as a boy.”
“He’s been great. I would love to have him for longer.”
“I said on commentary that he is the best player in the Premier League. It’s not because he scored that goal, I believe it. I think he should have been named the best player of the World Cup also. He is an absolute superstar”.
“Eden Hazard is a special player” “You need at least at 6 players to handle Eden Hazard he’s a fantastic player”
“He is the type of high-level player like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, this type of player is difficult to stop. These type of players need special attention”
“This is a player, you don’t worry about tactics you just tell him to go out there and play anywhere out on that pitch, he’s got so much ability”.
“Switch on the TV, look at him, immediately you realise his qualities. You know his qualities better than me. He’s an exceptional player. One, by far, one of the best players in the world.”
“He has been the Premier League’s outstanding player over the whole campaign, and he deserves the individual recognition. That is how I felt in 1995 when I won the title with Blackburn Rovers and was also Player of the Year for the first time.”
“The bad news for Chelsea’s rivals is that at 24, Hazard is only going to get better. In three or four years, I think we could be talking about the Belgian being the best player in the world – he has the potential to be that good.”
“I consider Eden Hazard to be a really, really top player”
“One character you cannot miss is Eden Hazard. He’s on fire. He’s probably the best player in the Premier League”.
“A player like him (Hazard) can make a difference”
“It is a privilege for a striker to have a player like him or Juan, Oscar or Lamps behind you.
“We have seen only 70%, 75%, 80% of his potential,” “If he is able to improve, he will be the best player in the world without a doubt.”
“It depends on the players you have. If I had (Eden) Hazard, I would give it to him and he would make the difference,”
“I think he’ll be seen as being one of the best players in the world. His skill on the ball, how he does it at speed, he’s just a world-class player” “He’s at the top of the tree in terms of ability on the ball, awareness and skill”
“But believe me he really is and he’s up there with Messi and Ronaldo without a shadow of a doubt. I’ve seen him day in, day out for the last five/six years and he’s a top, top player and he will only get better as well.”
“He’s been the spark with the players and the fans, he’s brought something different and he’s got much more to give. He needs to get a run of games and continue playing because he could be at the top.”
“If you take Ronaldo and Messi away, I don’t think you can find another player as decisive as Eden Hazard”. “Eden has won the league at Lille, a team that didn’t have the right to win it. And he has won the league at Chelsea in two different projects.
“I think Hazard is the best player in the Premier League I’ve seen talk about maybe Van Dijk winning Premier League POTY, but there should only be one winner and his name is Eden Hazard. I watch Chelsea matches just because I want to watch Hazard play.
“Eden Hazard is a Chelsea legend no matter what”
“Hazard is a player of the highest level who comes to win everything: the Champions League, La Liga and the Cup.”
