The Belgian national team coach believes the move from Chelsea to Real Madrid is a great choice by the star winger.

Eden Hazard will take his talents from English Premier League club Chelsea to the Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid.

And for Belgium national team coach Roberto Martinez, the talents his footballer has are unique.

“Eden [Hazard] is a team player who is committed to what the team needs,” Martinez told The Standard.

“He is a talent that can’t be found easily.”

“The most surprising thing about Eden is his degree of influence in each game, as he is a very consistent person who doesn’t depend on ups and downs and he isn’t emotional,” he continued.

“He has so much influence in the group and he lives by and for football, as he was born in a football family where his father and mother were players, and the three brothers enjoy the sport.”

“Unfortunately, the modern player has other influences, another way of understanding football,” he said.

“I think the beauty of Eden is to see an old-fashioned player with such a modern talent.”
