Currently, Juventus and Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer in the world after winning the last FIFA Ballon D’Or, but the 25-year-old Rudiger believes Hazard is better than him.
Since joining Chelsea in the year 2012 from Lille, Eden Hazard has been in superb form for the Blues winning two EPL titles, the FA Cup and Europa League.
The Belgium international has not won the FIFA Ballon D’Or in his career, but his teammate Antonio Rudiger has rated him ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.
”For me, the best player in the world is Lionel Messi, then Eden Hazard,” Rudiger said according to Metro UK.
This season, Chelsea have won all their four games in the Premier League, and they are currently occupying the second position on the League table.
Meanwhile, in an earlier report, NIGERIA NEWS had reported that Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri was planning to sing two Italian players to bolster his squad in January.
