Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not believe that Eden Hazard is of the same calibre as Messi and Ronaldo.
Hazard was one of the best players of the 2014-15 EPL season, claiming both the PFA and FWA Player of the year awards as he helped Chelsea to the title.
Mourinho believes his winger had a better season than Ronaldo who scored 61 goals, but Wenger feels the Belgium international needs to be more consistent.
He told reporters ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield clash against Chelsea: “It is all about opinions. You have to compare the numbers. I must say players like Messi and Ronaldo still score 50 goals and that is exceptional.
“He [Hazard] can decide the games and you put the top players in this kind of calibre when they can decide the games with something special.
“Hazard is in this category, now to reach the other two or three that are dominating world football at the moment I think it demands consistency which he is still to do.”
