Chelsea manager José Mourinho stated that Eden Hazard is now one of the three best football players in the world.
The Belgian star is playing probably the best season of his career, leading Chelsea to win the Premier League, a title that game after game seems closer and closer.
So Mourinho thought it was right to praise him after last game against Manchester United, where he scored the goal that gave 3 very important points to the Blues:
“He’s a kid, but he knows that he is one of the three best players in the world – he is coping with that responsibility”
“I had lots of stars. Hopefully in every club I worked I had stars. But he is the humble star, yes. He is the humble star”
“He’s getting strong. Physically, mentally he’s getting very, very strong. He understands his role. ‘The day before the game I told him: ‘This game we will never lose. Never”
“But we needed to win. He understands clearly that especially in a moment where the team doesn’t have all its power, he understands when the game becomes strategically”
“He understands that his talent is fundamental for the team. He was there for us and almost a second goal when he hit the post”.
