Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has named Belgium captain, Eden Hazard, as Chelsea’s most skilful player ever.
The Spaniard identified Hazard as one of the best players he has ever seen.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager stated this while commenting on Hazard’s move from Chelsea to Real Madrid.
DAILY POST had reported a few days ago that Hazard completed his move from Chelsea to Real Madrid.
The 28-year-old will be officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player today.
The forward scored 110 goals in 352 appearances for the Blues during his seven years at the club.
Speaking on Hazard’s move from Chelsea to Real Madrid, Guardiola told BBC Radio 5 Live: “For Real Madrid it’s an impressive signing, he’s one of the best players I’ve seen.
“It may be surprising to a lot of people [but] I’m delighted for him.
“Absolutely really happy for the guy, he wanted that. He’s given seven years to that club and he has been stunning through those seven years.
“His behaviour has been impeccable, he is the most skilful player I think has ever played for Chelsea Football Club.
“Certainly among the very few, three or four greatest players that’s ever played for the football club as well.
“He’s given all those years to it, good luck to him in his next adventure, he deserves it.
“Do you know what, I think most Chelsea fans would feel exactly the same way about it.
“Boy we will miss him and we’ll miss his skills, being able to see them in the Premier League. But you have to live with it and go forward.
“I just like the fact that the good guys now and again are allowed to shine and be special, and I liked his personality as well. Well done Eden, I hope you have a good time at Real Madrid.”
