Published on: 14 March 2018

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says Eden Hazard can match Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta - if he can start winning trophies.

The two are set to face-off in the Champions League tonight.

And Conte said: “We are talking about two different players with different careers. Iniesta won a lot in his career. Hazard has to start to win important trophies in his career.

“I have great admiration for Andres Iniesta. For him and for the players who created the history of Barcelona.

“Iniesta is a genius of football. I like to compare him with Andrea Pirlo. We are talking about a genius, a genius with a football.

“I don't know if tomorrow he could play (or not), but I think, in this type of game, it's right to face the best players, and not hope that they could miss out through injury."
