Didier Drogba thinks Chelsea are yet to see the best of Eden Hazard, and that the coming season will be even better than last for the Belgian.
Hazard had a superb season last year as Chelsea won the Premiership for the first time since 2010 having led the table from the start of the season.
The Belgian’s form won him a hat-trick of Player of the Year Awards- the PFA, the Football Writers’ and Chelsea’s own, as well as a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge. He is also the only the Premiership player shortlisted in UEFA’s list of best in Europe.
Drogba witnessed Hazard’s talent first hand in what was a farewell season for the Ivorian, and he believes that the star of last campaign can imrpove.
“I try to be objective but he was the best player last season, no doubt. He is winning everything but I still think there is big room for improvement.
“What he’s doing now is only two thirds of what he is capable of. But with age, maturity, he will be able to do even more and become more dangerous.”
