'I looked forward to watching him': Spurs player names Chelsea legend as his idol

“My idol in the football world is Eden Hazard, an unbelievable player and for sure by far my favourite player," Tottenham midfielder Dejan Kulusevski told talkSPORT

“I think football is love, football is about love and he gave me such happiness watching him play.

“I remember going to school and being happy because he had a game after school, so he changed the days, the days went faster because I was looking forward so much to watching him play and when he played I just enjoyed it.

“I actually met him one time and it was a good moment. I’m so sad that I never played against him before he retired, but the thing people remember is what a great player he was.

“So really, just thank you to him. I wish him all the best after his career,” Kulusevski added.

Hazard had a remarkable career at Chelsea where he is considered a club legend. The Spurs man might've watched some of those magical nights the Belgian had at Stamford Bridge.

Unfortunately, a move to Real Madrid did not turn out as expected with injuries taking a toll on Hazard. It forced a great player to retire in his early 30s.
