Eden Hazard has been an inspiration for Chelsea this season, and his career peaked since he joined Chelsea over four years ago.

Hazard has been tipped to win the Ballon d’Or, and many see him as one of the greatest in the game at the moment.

His younger brother Thorgan Hazard believes his elder brother is only behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

In an exclusive interview with Goal, Thorgan said: “Yes, everybody thinks Eden has the potential to become the world’s best player. But we have at the moment two [exceptional] players in Ronaldo and Messi. They are very strong so maybe Eden will have to wait a little bit until they stop or when they are really old!

“He could become the best – for me, he is already one of the best. I want to see him go third on the [Ballon d’Or] list one day soon and I think he’ll do it. I think a lot of people when they saw Eden playing, they go ‘wow what a player!’

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
