Real Madrid vs Chelsea: I cant be compared to Hazard yet - Pulisic


Chelsea winger, Christian Pulisic, has said that he still has a long way to go in becoming like Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard.

Pulisic also lauded Hazard as an incredible player who he ‘looked up to’ but insisted he is not comparing himself to the Belgium international.

The American international replaced Hazard at Chelsea, and both players are set to face each other in the Champions League semi-final first-leg tie on Tuesday night in Spain.

“He was an incredible player at this football club,’ said Pulisic at his pre-match press conference.

“He was someone who I definitely looked up to. I am not comparing myself to him in any way or trying to be like him.

“I’m my own player, and I’m doing my best for this club. It’s an honour to hear comparisons, but I still have a way to go.

“We’re moving on without him. I never played with him, so I only know how it is without him.

“We are in a good place now. We are in the semi-final of the Champions League. We have got a lot to play for this season, and this team definitely is in a good situation.”
