Sarri: Hazard can be the best in the world

Maurizio Sarri has said Eden Hazard can still improve, despite already being one of the best players in the Premier League.

Hazard has long been one of the most talented and dangerous players in the English Premier League, thanks to his devastating ability to glide past his man with pace, power and technique.

It is his superb ability that has seen him linked with a mega-money move to Real Madrid this summer, and although his new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has said he expects Hazard to stay at the club, he also believes he can still become the best in the world if he sets his mind to it:

“It depends on his position on the pitch,” Sarri said in his pre-match press conference.

“In the last five years, Cristiano has played like a striker, Messi like a striker, Eden sometimes like a winger. Eden can improve.

“We are talking about one of the most important players in Europe but he can improve more. He can be the first. It depends on him.

“The best for technical skill, the best for scoring but I think it depends only on him. On his mind.”
