- Rudiger rated Eden Hazard above Cristiano Ronaldo who is the current FIFA world best
Chelsea superstar Antonio Rudiger has claimed that his teammate at Stamford Bridge Eden Hazard is the second best player in the world behind Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

Eden Hazard has not won the FIFA Ballon D'Or in his career but his teammate Antonio Rudiger has rated him ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.
''For me, the best player in the world is Lionel Messi, then Eden Hazard,'' the 25-year-old Germany international said according to Metro UK.
This season, Chelsea have won all their four games in the Premier League, and they are currently occupying second position on the standings.
