How big a loss will Eden Hazard be at Chelsea?
Chelsea club captain Cesar Azpilicueta seems to think it will be a hard hit on the Blues. Eden was after all the player who Chelsea turned to every time they were in trouble.
He was the saviour and magician raising Stamford Bridge to its feet more often than not. A player like that comes by once in a generation and Chelsea will surely find it hard to cope without him.
“It’s a big loss for us, as a player and as a person,” Azpilicueta told beIN Sports.
“We came here together seven years ago, we have won six trophies, it’s been amazing on and off the pitch for me.
“I can only wish him the best because he’s a very good friend of mine.
“The desire he’s shown on the pitch for the club, his behaviour as the star man, I think everybody in the club loves him.
“He’s not selfish – a lot of times I heard rumours about him leaving. In other situations maybe other players could push but he didn’t do it.
“I can only say all the best and we’re going to miss him.”
