Manager of Premier League club Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri believes that Eden Hazard is more of an “individual player” and matchwinner but not a leader.
The Chelsea boss praised the qualities a world-class footballer but also advised that he must develop his leadership skills at the Premier League club.
“He’s more an individual player than a leader. He always can win the match in two minutes, sometimes in one minute,” Sarri said in a press conference.
Sarri said, “Hazard is very important for us [Chelsea] because he is a great player, he always can win the match in two minutes, sometimes in one minute but at the moment he is not a leader,”
“I think he has to do more, because the potential is higher than the performances,” he added.
Hazard, who is also known for his massive dribbling skills, led Belgium in last year’s World Cup semi-finals as a captain.
