According to the Belgium national team coach, Eden Hazard is one of the best players in the world and he’s unique and talented.

Many fans have accused Belgium superstar Eden Hazard of being too fat as he is playing his first games with Real Madrid.

But according to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, this is not true and in his eyes, the player is super talented.

“I’m happy to see Eden with the group,” Martinez said to Marca.

“He’s smiling. He’s a world-class player, who is unique, talented.”

The coach explained: “He is also very professional and, although he has already won trophies [in his career], he is reaching the highest point of his career.”

“He takes great care of himself and, in my eyes, he’s not fat.”

Martinez also spoke about goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois: “Courtois, when he arrived, had lost two kilos,” the Belgium head coach stated.”

“He’d suffered from a serious bowel problem and therefore needed time to recover.”

“Now he’s back and is in top shape,” he concluded.
