Eden Hazard has backed Christian Pulisic to become one of the best players in the world.
After spending seven years at the Chelsea, the Belgian forward finally achieved his dream move to Real Madrid. A gaping hole was hence created at Chelsea and Pulisic is being tipped to fill it.
The former Borussia Dortmund player impressed against Barcelona in a friendly on Tuesday. Hazard has now backed the 20-year-old to make it big at ‘one of the best clubs in the world.
“[Pulisic] can be one of the best in the future for sure,” Hazard told The Associated Press, according to Goal.
“He can be [a star]. Now he’s at one of the best clubs in the world… he’s a proper player.”
However, Pulisic had earlier dismissed claims suggesting he has arrived at Chelsea as a Hazard replacement, maintaining that he wants to forge his own legacy.
“I’m not here to compare or anything,” he told Sky Sports earlier this month.
“Obviously Eden was amazing and he did so well for this club, as you could see last season and the whole time he’s been here. He was an incredible player.
“For me, it’s coming in as my own player, proving myself and doing the best I can to help this team.”
