Former star of Arsenal, Ian Wright did not hold anything back when talking about Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as the pundit stated that the Belgian player is a world-class player who has recently gone through an extremely disappointing season which has seen him scoring only 3 goals and providing 3 assists from 28 league appearances.
In the previous season of the Premier League, Eden Hazard was named Chelsea’s Player of the Year. He was awarded with this individual award after managing to score 14 goals and 9 assists during the 2014-15 season of the English League.
This sudden drop of form from Eden Hazard has also been displayed by the majority of the Chelsea members but it’s been more evident with the Belgian player as he is one of the main figures of the Premier League club and without him, the team clearly does not function.
As a pundit, Ian Wright is up to date with everything that is going on in the world of football and he recently talked about the underwhelming season of Eden Hazard. Wright praised Eden Hazard by saying that the Belgian player is a world-class player but that he should be ashamed by what has been a disgrace of a season.

Former professional English player and football commentator, Ian Wright says former player, Thierry Henry will be the perfect replacement for The Gunners. Wright who played for seven years for the English team backs the Frenchman to head the coaching crew at the emirates.
Thierry Henry just completed his UEFA coaching badges and Ian Wright says he is the one to replace Arsene Wenger when he finally retires from the club.
“Thierry has got his badges, jump in, jump in. If you can’t get a Pep, which we can’t – Arsenal fans wouldn’t want Mourinho for whatever reason – if Thierry is ready to go and he can get the backroom staff, get it done,” Wright said. The leading goal scorer for Arsenal received his UEFA ‘A’ coaching badge last month. This means the former skipper can lead the coaching crew below EPL level or a youth team.
The television and radio personality also commented on other issues. He asked that Louis Van Gaal believe more in the youth in his Manchester united squad. He said if he were at the helms of affairs at the club, he would drop Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo. Ian said he favored youngsters, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson due to their style of play and contribution to the team. Read more »

“Throughout the trials and tribulations that have been Manchester United’s season, one thing stood out they always have a player who’s come through the ranks. There’s an incredible stat that Manchester United have had a youth product in their first team squad for league games at least in every game for nearly 80 years. While the current crop are a world away from that Class of 92, Jesse Lingard isn’t doing too badly this season. He’s proving more than up to the task of handling life at United.” Ian Wright said.
