Hazard on course to becoming ‘one of the best in the world’, says Conte

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte feels that Eden Hazard is on course to becoming one of the best players in the world.

The Blues boss underlined that Hazard has great talent but that he must must work to keep on improving.

“I know the great talent of Eden and he must continue to work and to improve all the time,” Conte was quoted as saying by Four Four Two.

“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.”

Hazard had a disappointing campaign last season scoring six times and providing eight assists which was a big dip on the 19 goals and 13 assists he had over the 2014-15 season.

The Belgium international was awarded Player of the Season over the 2014-15 campaign but struggled to replicate the same kind of form under the stewardship of former Blues Jose Mourinho last year.

The Blues star has however, returned to form and already has five goals and an assist in the league.

Hazard started today in Chelsea’s clash against Everton at Goodison Park. The London based outfit could join Premier League leaders Manchester City on 23 points with a victory against the Toffees.
