Eden Hazard has enjoyed an impressive year and Kylian Mbappe does not think he played against anyone better than the Belgian.
France and Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe ranks Chelsea winger Eden Hazard as the best player he has faced in 2018.
Mbappe won the inaugural Kopa Trophy for the best under-21 player in the world on Monday, while he also finished fourth in the running for the Ballon d’Or after his exploits for PSG and World Cup-winners France.
It was at that tournament in Russia where Mbappe came up against Hazard, as France defeated Belgium 1-0 in the semi-finals.
Mbappe was particularly impressed with Hazard’s sheer pace, while he also commended him for not playing with an ego, always appearing willing to pass the ball to a team-mate.
