Andy Robertson says that Real Madrid’s latest Galactico, Eden Hazard, is the best player he has faced in the Premier League.
The full-back will be glad that he has moved on to Spain from Chelsea. Hazard moved to the Bernabeu for a reported initial fee of around £88 million, reflective of his incredible ability considering he only had a year left on his Chelsea contract.
Robertson, though, has not seen the back of him just yet, because Scotland have a Euro 2020 qualifier against Hazard’s Belgium which kicks off at 7:45pm UK time tonight.
The Scottish captain, via the Daily Express, said: “He’s probably the best player I’ve come up against in the Premier League and he deserves his move.
“He’s probably one of the best in the world at the minute. It all comes back to showing him respect because of his ability but not showing him too much respect that we fear him.”
If anyone can deal with Hazard, it’s Robertson. The former Hull City man has become the best left-back in the country, and maybe the world, since he arrived at Anfield.
Hazard has always played well against the Reds, so we’re glad he’s moved on from Chelsea. The league will be losing a top player, but that’s certainly not detrimental to our chances of success.
