Chelsea midfielder Willian, has revealed he would pick Messi over Ronaldo and also believes Hazard can win the Ballon D’or.
Though Hazard has faced criticism from boss, Mourinho, Willian believes his teammate will gear up as the season goes on.
And he has opted for Barcelona star, Messi over Madrid forward, Ronaldo and backing compatriot Neymar for the ballon d’or crown also.
When asked who he would pick for his team out of the former Lille star Hazard and Barcelona sensation Neymar, Willian told Goal: “Both of them! They are players of great quality. Although they have different styles, in my opinion.
“Both are very skilled and have a lot of quality, but I think their styles are a little different. But I would choose both of them in a game to play in my team, for sure.
“I think so [Hazard and Neymar can win the Ballon d’Or]. They are two great players. I think it depends on them, but they have great potential to reach that level. So I think if they continue to develop, continue to grow, certainly they will have everything to achieve this award.”
And quizzed on who his preferred choice would be out of Ronaldo and Messi, Willian added: “Oh my, only one!?. I choose Messi.”
