Chelsea´s De Bruyne ¨Much more complete player than Hazard¨

According to Kevin De Bruyne´s former coach, Hein Vanhaezebrouck, the on-loan Chelsea midfielder is a more complete player and has a more expansive game than his Belgian counterpart, Eden Hazard, who has set the Premier League alight this year with his impressive attacking play for Chelsea.

He is quoted as saying: “Kevin is a much more complete than Hazard, He has a more extensive repertoire; he can play it left and right, short and long. He can dribble, make time and space and score from long distances.

“He can play on the left, on the right, or in the middle as be the second defensive midfielder alongside [Axel] Witsel when playing for the Belgian national side.

“Hazard is more like human lightening; he is able to go past one or two men and hit a difficult long pass. But he rarely plays it diagonally, his vision of the game is limited to the areas in front of him and his awareness is less.”

Chelsea´s Kevin De Bruyne, 21,  was signed from Genk last January and stayed at the club until the end of the season, And has this season been playing on loan at Werder Bremen, scoring 3 goals in 10 starts for the German Bundesliga side, and he is hotly tipped to be a success when he returns to Stamford Bridge next summer.

    We don’t know what De Bruyne will be like in the future, but right now he is no where near Hazard’s standard. Anyone who has watched Hazard even briefly will know he does not just play with the areas in front of him. I think Oscar and Mata are more visionary than Hazard but all three are way ahead of De Bruyne right now.
