​Neville compares Leicester whizkid Maddison to Hazard

Gary Neville has compared Leicester City wonderkid James Maddison to Eden Hazard.

The 22-year-old has been a revelation since signing for the club in the summer from Norwich City, collecting seven goals and six assists in the league this season.

And Sky Sports pundit Neville believes that his impact is similar to that of Chelsea star Hazard, especially in a creative sense.

"I mentioned Eden Hazard the other night," Neville said on air.

"They play football like it should be played as a kid where it's just really enjoyable.

"He is having an amazing first season."
