Barcelona legend, Carles Puyol has said Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard has a long way to go to be compared with the likes of Barca’s Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Puyol said this ahead of Barcelona’s second leg UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash with Chelsea on Wednesday night at Camp Nou.
The ex-Spanish international, however, said Hazard is yet to attain the level Messi and Ronaldo have reached in football.
“I don’t think he’s at their level yet,’ Puyol told Sky Sports.
“We are talking about incredible players. “It’s not just one season, they have been at the maximum level for 10 years now.
“For me, Messi is the best player in the world and in history. It’s impressive what he’s doing every year at an exceptionally high level, breaking records, getting better and better in more aspects of his game.
