Jose Mourinho has praised his ace Eden Hazard, calling him the currently best player in England despite his poor start to the Chelsea’s campaign.
The Belgium international has a difficult start to the season. Criticism has intensified even more when he missed a penalty in the match against Maccabi Tel-Aviv on Wednesday. Even so, the Portuguese coach has no doubt, that Chelsea winger is currently the best player in England.
Mourinho told Goal.com :
“He’s the best player in England,”
“It’s not because Rooney doesn’t score goals for three weeks that he’s not a fantastic player. Eden is the best player in this country.”
“It’s not because a bad performance or a penalty missed, or nor scoring goals for three of four weeks. He’s the best.”
“He’ll be the best again. I don’t know if it’s tomorrow or next week but one of these days he’s man of the match.”
