Former Chelsea winger Joe Cole told CFC Fan TV that Eden Hazard could become one of the club’s greatest players in a near future.
“I think he’ll go down as Chelsea’s greatest player, – the English star said – He’s certainly the most talented all-round footballer I’ve played with and he’s already a hero with the fans. I hope he stays there for the rest of his career”.
Cole played with Hazard during his time at LOSC Lille in 2011, under manager Rudi Garcia.
“My first game in France with Lille, Rudi Garcia was saying to me, ‘we’ve got this good kid, Eden Hazard’. He said ‘I want you to play with him’. And then he scored two of the best goals you’ll see within 20 minutes and I thought, ‘I don’t know if I’m good enough to play with him'”.
“He’s just a nice kid, he’s got a good way about him, he loves training, he loves football and everyone in that dressing room in France loved him.”
