Many football fans debate about who the better player is but it seems Hazard has given it some closure
Eden Hazard may be one of the biggest names in world football but the Chelsea man has revealed there is one player in the Premier League he looks to emulate.
The Belgian has scored 16 times this season for the Blues but Hazard has named Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah as the player he looks up to the most in the English top flight.
Salah, who used to be Hazard’s team-mate at Stamford Bridge, had an excellent season for the Reds last season and has scored 20 this term.
But Hazard’s future at Chelsea has been a constant source of speculation with Real Madrid heavily linked with the 28-year-old.
The recent reappointment of Zinedine Zidane as Los Blancos boss makes it more likely that Hazard is on his way to the Bernabeu.
And Hazard, who also said other players he looks up to include ex-Real star Cristiano Ronaldo and current Real player Luka Modric as well as Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
In an interview with NBC Sports last week, Hazard said: “I like Modric – he’s more of a midfielder than me but, of course, I like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Mo Salah is one of my good friends and he’s doing something incredible.
“I try to look at this player and this player and try to reach that level.”
