Eden Hazard is one of the important players of Chelsea. However, Liverpool legend John Barnes believes Chelsea will change for the better if they sell the player.
Hazard performed brilliantly with Chelsea this season. The Belgian star has scored 10 goals and made nine assists from 20 matches in the Premier League this season.
Last summer, Hazard was widely reported to be joining Real Madrid. Until now the rumor turned out to still not subside.
Hazard himself had revealed that he had a dream to play at the Santiago Bernabeu someday. Madrid is expected to return to target Hazard in the summer.
Barnes is very supportive if Chelsea sells Hazard to Real Madrid. Because, Maurizio Sarri’s team was very dependent on Hazard so that it could harm the Blues.
“The biggest problem for Chelsea is that they are very dependent on Eden Hazard,” Barnes said as quoted by the London Football.
“Steven Gerrard experienced the same thing, or Liverpool experienced something similar where when Hazard wanted the ball in any area he got the ball, he dominated other players so that other players could not come forward to show what to do because he was right. right dominates them.
“So if he doesn’t play well or scores goals, because the team is used to giving him the ball all the time, they don’t appear as a team.”
Barnes believes that big teams like Chelsea should not depend on just one player.
“Now it’s okay if you are a small team with big players, but for teams like Chelsea who want to be European and English champions, they must have enough big players not to dominate the team as much as him. Even Lionel Messi doesn’t dominate Barcelona like it’s Hazard at Chelsea.
