Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has spoken of his great admiration for Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta.

Hazard regards the midfielder as the ‘classiest’ player in the game today.

He told France Football: “Class, you have it or you do not have it. I do not know if I have it, it is not for me to say it. For me, the most classy of all is Zidane, but of the current players it is Iniesta. Big class.

“If someone tells me he does not like Iniesta, I would not understand. He has the right trick at the right time. He has everything, it’s beautiful. And then he does not talk much, not with the referee, if he loses, if he wins.

“Yes, class.”
