Eden Hazard has rubbished comparisons with Lionel Messi
Chelsea new boy Eden Hazard has insisted that he is not as good as Barcelona wizard Lionel Messi.
The 21-year-old moved to west London for £32million last month and has drawn comparison to the Argentine great.
“Messi is the world’s best player and it’s a bit of an exaggeration to say I can be that good,” Hazard said.
“But I am happy if people see similarities between us and being compared to Messi makes me think about what I can achieve with Chelsea rather than the obstacles I need to overcome to get there.
“Ultimately it’s the coach who will decide if I play in a similar role to the one Messi plays for Barca but I am looking to succeed the Eden Hazard way.”
