Chelsea star Eden Hazard was made the captain of the Belgium national team last year, and Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has hailed the 26-year-old for his leadership abilities.

He told ESPN: “There are many types of leader. Some are more vocal, others are less vocal and they lead by example and Eden is that way; he’s such a calm influence, but he’s someone who has got an incredible passion for the game.

“He’s a very special character on the pitch and in the final third.

And he is without a doubt a leader, someone who has grown immensely behind the scenes and taken responsibility.”

Hazard who was out of action for three months is now looking in good form, and Martinez will be counting on the Chelsea star for a good outing in the World Cup next year.
