Tottenham star Dejan Kulusevski names Chelsea legend Eden Hazard as PL’s best-ever winger
In a recent interview with TNT Sports, Tottenham Hotspur’s Dejan Kulusevski made a significant statement by naming Chelsea legend Eden Hazard as the greatest winger in Premier League history.
This acknowledgement from a current Tottenham star about a former Chelsea icon speaks volumes about Hazard’s impact on the game. Hazard’s career at Chelsea was marked by extraordinary skill, flair, and a capacity to change games single-handedly.
His dribbling, vision, and scoring ability not only brought joy to Chelsea fans but also earned him respect from rivals and admiration from football enthusiasts worldwide. Hazard’s influence extended beyond his technical abilities; he was a player who played with joy and freedom, embodying the essence of what many believe football should be about.
Kulusevski’s admiration for Hazard is rooted in these qualities. Despite being taller and having a different play style, Kulusevski has attempted to emulate some of Hazard’s moves and techniques, illustrating the Belgian’s broad impact on players across the league.
This respect from a current top player underscores Hazard’s legacy as not just a phenomenal talent but also a source of inspiration for the next generation of footballers. From a Chelsea perspective, Kulusevski’s praise is a testament to Hazard’s legacy at Stamford Bridge.
It reinforces the belief that Hazard was not just a great player for Chelsea but also one of the best in Premier League history. Such recognition from a rival player highlights the lasting impression Hazard has left on the league and cements his status as an all-time great in English football.
Speaking about the former Real Madrid superstar as quoted by Football. London, here is what Kulusevski had to say
“At first, I have to say Eden Hazard. He has been my favourite player since I was young. He made me happy, he made everyone happy by watching him play because he was just a joy, freedom, just like a child playing football with his dribbling, scoring, assisting and having fun because that’s what football is about”
Having recently retired from the game, Eden Hazard might be gone from the game, but it is evident that his legacy continues to live on. A huge crop of young wingers in the game have been impacted by the Chelsea legend.
