There Are 18 World Players Better Than Hazard

There Are 18 World Players Better Than Hazard

So, it`s that time of the year when those illustrious souls who run the game we all love announce the winner of the footballer they deem to be the best in the whole world. Or to put it another way, the best player who has played for Real Madrid or Barcelona.

There were two Chelsea players in with a shout of picking up the Ballon d`or, which took place at the Eiffel Tower in Paris this evening. Eden Hazard and N`golo Kante were both on the short list, which was actually quite long, given it was made up of 30 players.

The top three this year were, in 1st place Cristiano Ronaldo, you could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard. Amazing. You`ll never guess who was was only Barcelona`s Leo Messi. Third place went to PSG`s ex-Barcelona ace Neymar, nuff said.

So where did our two boys finish in the evenings proceedings. Well unbelievably, there are, according to the 173 journalists who pick the winner, 18 players in world football better than Eden Hazard, who came in 19th.

On a brighter note, N`golo Kante was the best placed Premier League player finishing in 8th place. It will be interesting to see where Hazard finishes next year, if he`s a Real Madrid player. My guess is he`ll suddenly jump into the top four.

Yeah...its a world of stat. Hazard needs to come out of the I can realm and move to the result space. We were also not in ucl last season. Someone please tell me Neymars achievment last season?....

For Neymer have won nothing to deserve third spot. On the other hand Hazard lacks consistency especially in big games.

Crazy. Mbape? Griezman? Harry Kane? The best player award lost its credibility the day Messi won when sneider won everything in Europe and came second in the World Cup. it is rubbish.
