Eden Hazard is currently hailed as the best player in the Premier League after his phenomenal start to the season, and he has even been tipped to win the Ballon d’Or award.
Olivier Giroud who joined Chelsea in January has seen firsthand what Hazard does in training, and he has called the Chelsea a magician.
According to Giroud, he was in disbelief when he first saw Hazard’s displays in training.
Speaking to Le Figaro, Giroud said: “When I discover Eden Hazard in training for my first session at Chelsea. I told myself: ‘F**k, it’s hard to get the ball off him’.
“Sometimes, there’s two or three players around him and he still manages to get out in tight spaces.
“He’s a magician, he’s impressive. Now, I’ve started to know him and I don’t find myself near him. It’s better for him and for me.”
Hazard currently has seven goals and four assists in the league this season, and he stunned again for Belgium with one of the best passes we’ve seen this season in the build-up to Michy Batshuayi’s first goal against Iceland.
