Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson has hailed Eden Hazard as one of the top five players in the world, report the Express.
Robertson must still be coming to terms with his unlikely rise to fame in the football world.
Having signed for Liverpool from Hull City in the summer of 2017, Robertson went on to make 30 appearances during his debut campaign as a red.
The 24-year-old has recently been rewarded for his good performances with the Scotland armband, as the Telegraph report.
Having made a combined 83 Premier League appearances for Hull City and Liverpool, Robertson has come face-to-face with some of the most talented players on the planet.

With Scotland locking horns with Belgium on Friday, Robertson spoke of the dangers that Hazard poses, as well as revealing his belief that the Chelsea star is one of the top five in the world. He’s quoted by the Express saying:
“He is probably in the top five at the minute. I have come up against him many times so I know what threat he can have.”
“Even if he is having a quiet game, he can pop up at any point and turn a game. That is what we are up against.”
“He is special. The way he turns and gets at players and commits two or three defenders, there’s not many that have that.”
Few would argue with Robertson. Hazard has continually showcased his world-class ability since signing for Chelsea in 2012.
Hazard is already one of the greatest players ever to grace the Premier League, and at 27-years-old, he’s only just entering what are considered to be the prime years for a player of his kind.
