Antonio Rudiger Insists Hazard Is Better Than Ronaldo

Antonio Rudiger

Cristiano Ronaldo was the 2017 Ballon d'Or winner but, according to Antonio Rudiger, Lionel Messi and Eden Hazard are the world's best.

Antonio Rudiger believes only Lionel Messi is better than Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard in world football.

Hazard has been Chelsea's star man since arriving from Lille in 2012, but he has failed to challenge dominant duo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the Ballon d'Or.

However, despite Ronaldo's current monopolisation of the award, Germany's Rudiger ranks Messi as the world's best and claims Hazard is his nearest challenger.

Asked about the task of handling France forward Kylian Mbappe in the Nations League, Rudiger replied: "Mbappe is unbelievably fast, really good. To stop him, you have to do it as a team, because alone ... good luck!

"But for me, the best in the world is Messi, then Hazard."
