Eden Hazard is on his way to becoming one of the world’s best players according to Chelsea manager Antonio Conte. Hazard has been in blistering form so far this season scoring five goals and notching up an assist. Also for the first time in his career he scored in three consecutive matches against Leicester, Manchester United and Southampton.
This has pleased Conte and he said “I know the great talent of Eden and he must continue to work and to improve all the time. In this moment, he is putting his talent and himself in the team. This is fantastic and the right way to become one of the best in the world. If you ask me the difference between Messi and Ronaldo, I don’t want to reply. The only thing that I want to do is work with him, and my players, to try to improve and support them.”
Last season Hazard was a shadow of himself, struggling to keep fit and at a point it seemed he was ready to leave the club. Conte stated
“I don’t like to speak about last season and a single player. I repeat, I think when you have this type of bad season, many players of the team didn’t perform in the right way. Now it is another season and I am pleased he performs with the commitment and the work rate for the win that I see during training.
“It is important in this type of modern football that you have the talent and technique, but you must run with intensity and the strength to have the contact. Here in England, we play with an intensity that is supersonic.”
