Why Hazard is a difficult player, Noble claims


West Ham United star Mark Noble has hailed Belgium international and Chelsea star Eden Hazard, claiming that he is very difficult to stop when he is on the move.

The West London outfit defeated West Ham by 2-0 last Monday with the Belgium international giving a great performance in the game in addition to the goals he scored.

Mark Noble, who later spoke in a guest column for Standard Sport said he was helpless in stopping Eden Hazard, noting that the first goal scored by the Belgium international was a blast as his teammates watched helplessly.

He added that an attempt to stop or foul the star player could lead to a penalty kick because he has got a very fast kick and that will make it difficult for any player to mark him out or get close to him.

However, Eden Hazard could be having his last season with the West London outfit as he is being wanted by Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid for a move in the coming summer transfer window.

The Belgium international is also keen to land a move away as he hopes to make reality his dream move and also his wish to work under his football idol.
