According to Chelsea defender, Cesar Azpilicueta, he believes teammate Eden Hazard can attain the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and win the Ballon d’or.
The 24-year old Chelsea man has scored 14 goals and has 8 assists in 33 appearances this season. The playmaker’s goal was the only difference in Chelsea’s win over West Ham to further cement their five point lead ahead of Manchester City
Azpilicueta said, “We are talking about two monsters of football today,” the Spain international told Marca when asked about Ronaldo and Messi. “Eden is a great player, younger than them, and therefore has more capacity for improvement.”
“I think in the future he could win the Ballon d’or, he has the quality to it, but I see more focus on titles than achieving individual trophies. But yes, he has great quality and I think in the future we will see with the trophy in his hands.”
