Leicester boss Puel: Hazard could play for any team in the world

Published on: 13 January 2018

Leicester City boss Claude Puel doubts Eden Hazard needs to leave Chelsea to step up his game.

The Foxes chief gave Hazard his professional debut when he was a 16-year-old at Lille in 2007.

Puel said: "He can continue to make progress. After, I don't know if he has to stay at Chelsea or not - is that a problem?

"But I think he can continue to develop as a player. He has all the qualities to play for all the great teams in Europe, of course.

"He can make the difference, so for me he is a top player in Europe.

"The team is around Eden because he is the most important player for them. It is not possible to stop him because he cannot play in just the same position.

"He can play wide or striker or come back to take the ball. He can make always penetration and the difference, it is just important to have a good structure and organisation around him."
