The legendary Juan Roman Riquelme of Argentina has been cited by Eden Hazard, the captain of Belgium, as the best number 10 to ever play the position.
Footballer Riquelme, who is regarded as one of the greatest Argentine players of all time, is Hazard’s idol, and he expressed the hope that one day he would be able to meet him.
The Real Madrid player was speaking after Belgium’s 1-0 victory over Canada in the World Cup on Wednesday.
Recall that Michy Batshuayi’s goal in the first half gave Belgium victory over Canada in their World Cup debut.
The finest number 10 I’ve ever seen play, he’s an idol.
“I haven’t met him, but I do aspire to do so sometime. In today’s sport, players like Riquelme are viable options.
Former Chelsea star Hazard told Diario Ole.
