Pep Guardiola has admitted that Eden Hazard is one of the best players that he’s ever seen and is backing the playmaker to be a big success at Real Madrid.

Hazard was officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player on Thursday and was paraded in front of the club’s fans at the Bernabeu.

The Belgian playmaker is widely considered to be one of European football’s top attacking talents and he has finally secured his move to Real Madrid from Chelsea FC after years of speculation linking him with the switch.

Hazard will be linking up with the likes of Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos at Real Madrid to work under his boyhood idol Zinedine Zidane at the Spanish club.

And Manchester City manager Guardiola seems to think that the move will be a good one for the 28-year-old former Lille star.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Guardiola said: “The player they’ve signed from Chelsea is a very, very, very good player.

“It’s an amazing signing. He’s one of the best players I’ve seen. They’re going to have a lot of fun watching him.”

Chelsea FC brought in Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund this year, but it remains to be seen whether the USA international is ready to step into Hazard’s boots at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard’s last act for Chelsea FC was helping them to beat Arsenal in the Europa League final back in May.
