Liverpool defender Andy Robertson reveals that Real Madrid’s new signing Eden Hazard is the toughest opponent he has ever faced, according to Mirror
Robertson has played against the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in recent campaigns, but the Scotsman said Hazard is up there and one of the best in the world.
Robertson said, “He’s probably the best player I’ve come up against, on his day,”
“He deserves his move; he deserves all the plaudits he gets. He’s a fantastic player, a world-class player and probably one of the best in the world right now.”
Hazard scored two times against Liverpool in the previous campaign.
In the second half, he came off the bench, as a substitute, to score the winning goal for Chelsea in a 2-1 win in the Carabao Cup at the Anfield in September.
He also scored the opening goal in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at the Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.
The 28-year-old Belgian international completed his long-awaited move to Real Madrid this week and said it was his dream to play for the Los Blancos since he was a child.
During his seven seasons spent at Chelsea, Hazard scored 110 goals in 352 matches and contributed two goals in Chelsea’s winning cause in Europa League final against Arsenal.
He won a Premier League title, two times Europa league, FA Cup and the League Cup at the Stamford Bridge.
