Paul Scholes has hailed Eden Hazard as one of European football’s top talents, but admits that the Chelsea FC playmaker still has room for improvement.

The 27-year-old is widely considered to be one of European football’s top attacking players, with the playmaker having won two Premier League titles since his move to Stamford Bridge from Lille back in 2012.

Hazard was voted as the PFA player of the year in 2015 as he helped the Blues to win the Premier League and League Cup under Jose Mourinho.

He also helped Chelsea FC to win the title in Antonio Conte’s first campaign at the club, and he scored the winning goal for the Blues in their FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United last month.

Many feel that Hazard still has room to step up a level, and that’s what Manchester United midfield legend Scholes also believes.

Speaking to BT Sport, Scholes said: “This is a player, don’t worry about tactics, you just tell him to go out and play anywhere on that pitch.

“He’s got so much ability.

“The frustrating thing is that he’s not quite gone up to that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi level. And I think he has the ability to do that.”

Hazard’s future is likely to be a source of speculation this summer after Chelsea FC missed out on qualification for next season’s Champions League due to their fifth-placed finish in the Premier League this term.

Chelsea FC will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
