Eden Hazard names Chelsea  forgotten flop as most talented player he’s ever played with I his career

Eden hazard has surprisingly revealed Chelsea flop Gael Kakuta as the most talented player he has ever played with.

Kakuta moved to Stamford bridge from French side Lens in 2007 spending eight years in West London, however the majority of his time was spent out on loan at the likes of Vitesse, Lazio and Rayo Vallecano.

The Frenchman left Chelsea in 2015 to join Spanish outfit Seville having made just 16 appearances in all competitions and failing to score.

Speaking on The Obi One Podcast Hazard was asked which of his former team mates had the most talent to which he responded: “When you say Kevin De Bruyne, he’s top on the list, when you say Frank Lampard he’s top of the list, Juan Mata for me was top of the list. I’m gonna give you one name and John knows the player.”

“The only one I was saying ‘wow’ but when I stopped playing young team you know in France was Gael Kakuta. You asked me talent. Kakuta by far number one. Talent. I mean, talent. Wow.”

Hazard and Kakuta came through the youth systems at Lille and Lens around the same time and this is when he really noticed the talent.

“You know, I play I play against him a lot when because I used to play in Lille and he was playing in Lens. You know, it’s a derby, it’s the north of France,” Hazard added.

“So me being me. We used to win every game every game every game five, six zero. Me, best player every game. And then every time we play against him, we’re losing the game. He’s the best player.

“He’s the best player. This is not normal. I think now is easy to say but I think it went a bit too early to Chelsea. He was 16 when he left France for Chelsea, you know? And that step at 16 is a huge step.”
