Chelsea’s assistant manager Gianfranco Zola believes Eden Hazard is Chelsea’s greatest foreign player of all time.
The 28 year old Belgium international has been at Stamford Bridge for seven years, winning two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, the Europa League and an EFL Cup since joining from Lille.
Chelsea have boasted stars including Didier Drogba and Zola himself Petr Cech, but the Italian says Hazard, is the pick of the bunch.
“Eden Hazard’s definitely at the very top,” said Zola, ranking the 28-year-old as Chelsea’s best overseas signing.
“He’s such an unbelievable player. The more I’ve spent time with him the more I appreciate him as a player, but also as a boy.”

“He’s been great. I would love to have him for longer. What we are trying to do here perfectly suits him. It’s no coincidence that he’s having his best season.”
“I don’t want to take anything away from him and what he has achieved. But certainly, the way we play helps him a lot.”
“Of course we hope that Hazard will stay with us because he’s such an important player for us.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. Buy NOW!!!
