The Chelsea star, Eden Hazard, has revealed he considers Lionel Messi to be the ‘Greatest of All Times’ (GOAT), despite the debate surrounding the historic rivalry between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Hazard, who took on Messi twice in last season’s Champions League fixtures, revealed he reckons the Argentine to be the best to ever lace up a pair of football boots.
Messi reached the milestone of 400 La Liga goals at the weekend.
“There aren’t two GOATs, there’s only one and it’s him,” Hazard told Belgian publication HLN when asked about Messi.
“My two matches against Barcelona were far from my favourite memories of 2018, but I was happy to face Barcelona and Messi.
“It didn’t turn out how I wanted, though. I was disappointed.”
