Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole admits he's been impressed by Eden Hazard since joining Lille on-loan.

Cole says the Belgian winger can go on to become one of the leading players in the world, not just in France.

"Eden is a special player with all the qualities of a great footballer - physically, technically and mentally, he has everything. He can certainly become one of the best players in the world. And on top of all that he is a good guy," said Cole of the reigning Ligue 1 player of the year in France Football.
