Speaking during an interview to Maxifoot football legend Zinedine Zidane stated that his favourite player in modern football is neither Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo, but Chelsea star Eden Hazard:
“Obviously, there is Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, both of whom are spectacular, but I like Eden Hazard more”
“I like everything he does on the field. I like his behaviour, his decisiveness and love to see his progress every year”
“There is still scope for further progress, and if Chelsea are to win the league this season, Eden will have had a lot to do with it“.
