Hazard lauds Chelsea team-mate Torres for strength of character

Eden Hazard has paid tribute to Chelsea team-mate Fernando Torres and his ability to shrug off criticism following a £50million move to Stamford Bridge in January 2011. "I believe he is the most criticised player in the world," Hazard told L'Equipe.

"As soon as there is a bad match, it is his fault.

"He has missed opportunities, just like everyone else. He is always here trying. He has always got over blips and scored goals. That is really impressive.

"He is quite a reserved guy. He is in his own bubble."
