West London outfit Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has opined that Belgium international Eden Hazard is the best foreign import the club has ever produced in their history.

The Blues assist who was a former player and scored 80 goals in 312 appearances between 1996-2003 claims he did not do enough as the Belgium international did for the club.

According to him, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has done much for the Blues team but he cannot match the Belgium international in performance for the team, stressing that Eden Hazard is at the very top in the ranking.

He noted that he is an unbelieving player and is being appreciated by the entire football word as the day goes by.

Zola stated that he would love to work much longer with Eden Hazard because of how much quality he has to contribute to the team.

However, Eden Hazard is being linked away from the club with reports claiming that he would be heading to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid as soon as the season ends.

The Belgium international is keen to work with his football idol Zinedine Zidane and he is reportedly pushing for a move to land the deal.
