Fans respond to Hazard’s call for Chelsea to sign quality before he commits to club

Eden Hazard has shed some light on his future at Chelsea by effectively stating that he will wait and see who the club brings in during the summer transfer window before committing his future.

While that might seem fair enough to some fans after another year in which he was among the top performers in an underwhelming title defence, it does not appear that the notoriously demanding Blues fans have seen it that way.

They are viewing Hazard’s comments as disrespectful to his team-mates – who they have spent much of the year criticising for their poor defence of the Premier League title – and as a sign that he thinks he is better than he is.

That looks a bizarre attitude to take towards a man who could, on his best form, legitimately lay claim to being the best player in the Premier League but we’ve taken a closer look nonetheless…
