Chelsea superstar, Eden Hazard has humbled himself and declared he is not one of the best in the world…yet.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the Belgian said, “I’m not a top-five player yet, maybe I’m close to it, but I still have to work on some aspects. You can only be part of that group if you are decisive in the top games. I (have started) doing that, like I did against Manchester City and Arsenal.”

Asked who is better than him, young Hazard wasted no time in his answer…

“Who are better than me? The two extra-terrestrials, Ronaldo and Messi, Ibrahimovic, Ribery and Robben. They make the difference almost every game.”

“It all goes well for me at Chelsea,” said Hazard. “Maybe this has been the best start in my career so far, although it isn’t reflected in the stats. I have played only one bad game – against Aston Villa.

“I’ve taken a good rest during my holiday, I had a short, but good pre-season and I feel really well.

“Jose Mourinho and I get along well. I’ve lots of respect for him. He gives me a lot of confidence. After a bad game, he dares to say ‘we have played with 10 today’, but that’s it. At moments like that he leaves me alone.”

Chelsea fans will claim Hazard is one of the best in the world and so might neutrals alike…but can he attain the heights of Ronaldo and Messi?
