Mourinho: Hazard is the best young player in the world
Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has heaped praise on the Belgian sensation who helped the Blues register a famous 1-0 Premier League win over fancied Manchester City on Monday night.
The 23-year old has been the club’s stand out performer this season so far and the Portuguese tactician believes that there are no young players in the world at the moment that can the hold a candle over Hazard.
Jose Mourinho said:
“He needs to keep his feet on the ground. He still has to improve but he is probably the best young player in the world with legs to go there [to the level of Messi and Ronaldo]. Give him time, and Willian, [Andre] Schurrle, [Mohamed] Salah too. Give them time. They need good results and so this result is very important for them.”
Such big words from ‘The Special One’ would definitely boost Hazard’s confidence. He’s been absolutely sensational for Chelsea this season and will surely challenge Liverpool’s Suarez and City’s Kun Aguero Premier League’s Player of the Year.
