Chelsea star names Arsenal legend among top five players

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has named his top five all-time favourite players - and there’s a space for Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

The 23-year-old Belgium international selected veteran Argentina playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme, who played for Barcelona but is known best for his starring roles at Boca Juniors and Villarreal, as his number five favourite player.

At number four he went for a choice many might find a little surprising: the tricky Brazilian forward Robinho.

Hazard then selected the flamboyant Brazilian star Ronaldinho as his number three pick, followed by Henry, who some consider to be the Premier League’s greatest ever player.

However, Hazard’s all-time favourite footballer is the France legend Zinedine Zidane, who ended his playing career in 2006.

Zizou is widely recognised as one of the greatest players of his generation - and Hazard clearly picked up a few tips from watching the former Real Madrid midfielder.

Give it a few more years and Hazard will surely feature on a few top five lists himself.

Hazard's top five:

1. Zinedine Zidane

2. Thierry Henry

3. Ronaldinho

4. Robinho

5. Juan Roman Riquelme
