Chelsea star Eden Hazard fortified his claim to be apparent heir to Messi and Ronaldo‘s throne with another staggering display in Saturday’s Premier League thrashing of Newcastle, scoring twice.
“When you think of the players who can take the mantle from the two top players at the moment – Messi and Ronaldo – Hazard come into that category. He is that good,” Souness stated.
As indicated by former manager and Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness, the Belgian international is among a modest bunch of players who can succeed Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo at the summit of world football.
Hazard was exceptionally commended after his impassive chipped penalty sealed the Stamford Bridge outfit’ win on Saturday, an outcome particularly motivated by the Belgian forward.
“His best years are ahead of him. My only criticism of him is that sometimes he’s not banging on it, but when he is in the mood he was today he is unplayable,” Souness added. “The truly great players become unplayable, and when he is at it he certainly is great.”
“You can set all the bear traps and obstacles for him but, like all the great players, he finds a solution to what’s put in front of him. He’s among a handful of players who you can say are unplayable on their day.”
