Hazard is up there with Ronaldo and Messi, claims Mourinho

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is among the best three players in the world, according to Jose Mourinho.

The 24-year-old has been nominated for the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year award after another fine Premier League campaign, notching 13 goals and eight assists in the competition alone.

Hazard was the hero again as Chelsea extended their lead at the top to 10 points after he scored the winner in his side’s 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

“He’s a kid, but he is also a family man and he knows he is one of the three best players in the world, responsibility comes with that and he is coping with that responsibility,” Mourinho told reporters.

“If people want to be fair, he gets that award [Player of the Year]. But the award I want him to win is the Premier League. I’ve had lots of stars, but he’s the humble star. He’s a great kid.

“Physically, mentally he’s getting very, very strong. He understands his role. He understands his talent is fundamental for the team.”
