There has been so much hype surrounding the former Lille midfielder but i think he has not lived up to expectation.
Honestly i think Eden Hazard is just your normal average player. I think Chelsea is just beginning to have Liverpool’s bad habit of buying insignificant players for enormous sums. Take Jordan Henderson who was bought for between 16 and 20 million pounds. I think it was just a waste of money. i put Hazard and Henderson in the same ‘player’ bracket; players who flatter to deceive. I think Chelsea wasted too much money trying to sign Hazard for that mammoth sum.
I support FC Barcelona and i think only players from Barcelona and Real Madrid can command such sums from other clubs. Anyways Abramovich is one of the richest men in the world. He probably just felt like spending a little overboard. Hazard clearly has a long way to go and is certainly not in the league of the world’s best players, most of whom ply their trade in La Liga. He has a lot of work on his hands.
