Chelsea star Eden Hazard has welcomed praise from manager Jose Mourinho. Mourinho last month branded Hazard the best young player in the world, but the Belgium international is not satisfied with that tag.
"It was nice of my manager to say that, but the important thing is, I'm always testing myself, always challenging myself to do better," the 23-year-old said.
"It is also good that Jose Mourinho is always in my face, telling me what he thinks, whether it is good or bad. That really keeps you on your toes, as a player, and is good for my progression.
"I would like to be considered the best in the world, but there is a gap at the moment. What do I have to do to close it? Score goals, go past players, pass the ball. Basically the same as now, only two times better.
"I have to excel at the highest level week-in week-out, but I cannot claim to be doing that yet. I think I have proved myself in the Premier League, but I have to do the same in the Champions League. That is the ultimate stage to judge yourself on. I have to show what I can do at that level, against the best around."
