Talking about the world’s best soccer players, many of us will mention Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar, even Mbappe. These players are considered to have the most skills and classy achievements to become the world’s best players. But there is one special name that deserves to be aligned with the stars who is Eden Hazard.
Then, why can’t Hazard be considered as good as Messi and Ronaldo?
Eden Hazard is a mainstay player in Chelsea. His accurate acceleration and kicks make Hazard becomes the perfect player in the coach’s eyes. His high determination and leadership make this player is worth enough to be taken into account. Even the former captain of Chelsea, John Terry, also commented on about Hazard,
“He is one of the players which is about to approach the level of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo,”
“I see it every time he competes until I’m sure of it,”
“He is one of the best players in the world!”
John Terry is very confident that Hazard is one of the world’s best players. He even believes that Hazard is almost as good as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, to be a player like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Hazard must be able to make himself into a ‘selfish’ player. Early in his career, Hazard’s talents were seen. He was an extraordinary player and his thoughts were amazing. But if he wants to be the best player in history, he must also have a murderous soul. Hazard must be a player who hates defeat and a player who is not only concerned on the team but also achieved for himself.
At the beginning of his football career, Ronaldo thought that he only needed to play and win the match. However, a few years later he began to think that he had to become the key player in the team he was defending. Even today, when his team won a match, Ronaldo would not feel so happy if he didn’t contribute any score for the victory.
“When he was injured or being banned, he was always angry. He always thought of himself why he couldn’t compete at that time,”
“It has become his character.”
His former teammate, Rio Ferdinand, revealed one of Ronaldo’s secrets to becoming a winner.
Until now, Ronaldo and Messi have had 5 Ballon d’Or trophies throughout his career, while Hazard has not won any such prestige titles. He is only known as a talented player, instead of a player who has many personal titles. Under Mourinho’s direction, he had not found his best game yet. Along with Conte, he seemed to rediscover what was actually inside him. And with Sarri, he found the vision of his best game. Hazard confessed that Sarri had given him a lot of instructions. In an interview with The Times, Hazard revealed,
“He is an amazing coach. I hope we will continue this collaboration. “
One thing that becomes the key for Hazard to become a historic player is that he must have more ambition in every match.
