Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has heaped praise on Eden Hazard, stating that the Real Madrid star is the Michael Jordan of football and has all it takes to win the Ballon d’Or.

Eden Hazard has become a household name due to his performances for Chelsea and Belgium over the years. As a result, Roberto Martinez thinks that the winger can win the Ballon d’Or in the future as he has consistently played at a very high level over the last few years.

"I see Hazard winning the Ballon d'Or," Martinez was quoted as saying. "He has the role of being a Ballon d'Or winner.
"What he has done is the level of the Ballon d'Or and he is always eligible for the prize.
"He has done it at Chelsea, in France. It is difficult for a foreigner to be at the reference of a project that works to win the league.”

Martinez then went on to label him as the Michael Jordan of football.

"He is a last-pass player, a Michael Jordan. Hazard is the Michael Jordan of football."

After a slow start to life at Real Madrid, Eden Hazard was slowly getting back to his best before injuring his ankle in the game against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. He is now set to miss the Clasico against Barcelona on the 18th of December, which is a huge blow for the Galacticos.
