I am sick of reading about Eden Hazard. It has been the most over-reported story of the summer, but it looks like he has made his mind up and we can all forget about it. Chelsea, obviously, are expecting big things form the Belgian international but he has claimed that Arsenal have a better player in Gervinho, The Sun reports.
The two players were team mates for two seasons at Lille, helping the club win the French league title. Gervinho was employed as a striker/winger and scored 15 league goals that season.
Hazard told reporters that he watched videos of Messi and Ronaldo. “Great players inspire you. The best player I played with was Gervi.” Maybe Arsenal have a genius on their hands, but four goals in 34 games this season was not that impressive. Who knows, maybe he will come good this year.
Maybe Hazard will find it as difficult as Gervinho to adapt to, and impress in, the English Premier league. It would be very funny if, after all the hype, Chelsea have got another expensive flop on their hands.
