Courtois: “I’m one of the best in the world”

Real Madrid's number one is struggling since his arrival to Santiago Bernabeu, but now looks like he's picking up the form.

There is an old saying that confirms football was made for short people, players like Diego Maradona or Lionel Messi confirm this.

Eden Hazard is simply the latest in a long line of great players who aren’t particularly tall, which is a major advantage because they can move faster on the pitch with the ball at their feet.

Apart from those two legends we previously mentioned, we can also drop names such as Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta, Gheorghe Hagi, Gianfranco Zola, Luka Modric, Franck Ribery, David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Lothar Matthaus, Andrea Pirlo, and the list could go on for days.

You get the gist of it, Eden Hazard is on the right side of football history.
