He's scary - Demba Ba raves about 'exceptional' Chelsea star

Eden Hazard Celebrates With Lille

Chelsea striker Demba Ba has been talking up Eden Hazard ahead of the club's Champions League encounter with PSG.

Chelsea face PSG in the Champions League later this month, and striker Demba Ba is busy trying to frighten the French public over the star who could KO the Ligue 1 champions.

Eden Hazard's ability is no secret in France, where he helped Lille win the title three seasons ago, and Ba maintains he has improved even further since joining Chelsea.

Speaking to French radio station RMC, Ba commented: "He is an exceptional player. Today, he can do anything, even defend, he has proved this in matches.

"When he has the ball in the feet, he goes very fast. He scares a lot of people.

"He took a new dimension to Chelsea because the aura of the club is more important. When we do good performances at Chelsea he is seen differently than if they were made ​​in Lille.

"He has a strong character and is progressing every day."

PSG really though need no further warning about Hazard, a player they are said to hold aspirations themselves to sign.

Jose Mourinho has previously dismissed this possibility, saying he wants Hazard to stay at Chelsea for the best part of the next decade. You suspect all the money in the world would not convince him to change his mind, which is just as well for Blues supporters, because if anybody could afford him, it's their Champions League opponents.
