Sarri compared Hazard to Messi and Ronaldo
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri compared his playmaker Eden Hazard with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on his contribution to the team’s results.
The night before, Hazard returned to the false-nine position, contributing to the Blues’ victory over Watford with the score of 1:2, having scored his team’s both goals. Eden has already participated in 19 Chelsea’s goals in Premier League’s this season.
In addition, the 27-year-old Belgian with his double scored his 100th goal for the club from Stamford Bridge. After that, Sarri doesn’t skimp on the praise for his leader.
Sarri compared Hazard’s importance for Chelsea with Messi’s importance for Barcelona or Cristiano Ronaldo’s for Juventus. Eden is a very dangerous player who can play in any position. At the moment, the striker is very good at the false-nine position.
In the match against Watford, the Belgian created about 5 dangerous moments, 2 of which he successfully converted into the goals. In addition, he perfectly distracts the attention of his opponents and creates space for his partners.
