Eden Hazard is not at the top level yet – Guillem Balague

The Spanish football expert has his say on Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Guillem Balague believes that Belgian winger Eden Hazard is too inconsistent and doesn't have the right mentality to become on the world's best players at the moment.

The Revista de la Liga regular has been answering fans' questions for  Bleacher Report and was asked the following by one football follower: "#AskGuillem @br_uk @GuillemBalague Do you think Eden Hazard has the potential to become the worlds best?"

It's hard to agree with Balague on this one. Hazard's domestic form for both Lille and Chelsea has been brilliant in the last three years.

Of course he doesn't have the consistency of players like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, but those pair are once in a lifetime players, freaks of nature if you like.

For the standards of a winger, you would have to argue that he is currently world class - you only have to look at his form of last season to see that proven true.

Whether or not he can become the world's best is another matter. He is only 23 years old so he still has a lot of time to improve himself.
