Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes Eden Hazard can be compared to Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo or Barcelona’s Leo Messi as the Belgian star ‘is a very great plater”.
Hazard, who scored a brace in the Blues’ away victory against Watford tonight, also marked his 100th goal (the opener in Chelsea’s 1-2 win) in all competitions with the Premier League giants.
And Sarri was pleased to remark this record: “Of course he is very important for us, but Messi is very important for Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo is very important for Juventus. He is a very great player”.
“He is able to play in every position. He is playing like a false number nine. He is very able to play in that position, today he scored two goals and I think he made two or three very good assists.
He is very able to come to play with the team-mates, he is able to make space for team-mates, he is very able in that position, but I think that he can play very well in every position.”
