Graeme Souness makes bold claim about Chelsea star Eden Hazard
Graeme Souness says Eden Hazard is good enough to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona
Graeme Souness claims that Eden Hazard would easily get into the Real Madrid or Barcelona team due to his “ridiculous” talent.
Hazard scored Chelsea’s second goal as the Blues eased to a 3-0 victory over defending Premier League champions Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
The Belgian playmaker seems to be rediscovering his best form for his club after a season to forget with the Blues last term.
Hazard struggled for form and fitness last season as Chelsea slumped to a disappointing 10th-placed finish in the Premier League and ended the campaign without a trophy.
The 25-year-old looks like he has been given a fresh ease of life under new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge this season.
And former Liverpool star Souness is under no illusions about how talented Hazard is.
Speaking on Sky Sports on Saturday, Souness said: “There is no doubt about it, he has the most ridiculous talent.
“He can get into anybody’s team. He’d get into Real Madrid or Barcelona’s team.”
Hazard will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
