Eto'o says Hazard can win Ballon d'Or with Real Madrid

Former Real Madrid and Barcelona forward Samuel Eto'o says Eden Hazard can win the Ballon d'Or.

Eto'o, who's better known for his time at the Camp Nou than in the Spanish capital, tipped the Belgian to win the Ballon d'Or while at Real Madrid.

"Hazard has to win the Ballon d'Or," he said to Radio MARCA.

"He hasn't been valued enough but now he's at one of the best teams in the world all eyes will be on him.

"He's close to Messi's level and I hope that he plays Barcelona when he's not at 100 percent."
