Eden Hazard vs. Michael Laudrup

May 27, 2012 Comments Off by

Which player has the same style and vista as Eden Hazard? We found him, and the name is … Michael Laudrup!

(note: comparing players with each other is not a good thing to do, but when media do – and they do, they better compare with the right player!)

He is less famous than Zidane and co, but Michael Laudrup was a brilliant Danish player that played for Lazio, Juventus, and Johan Cruyff’s dominant and ultra-offensive Barcelona, called the Dream Team in the nineties.

Raúl: “The best I have ever played with.”

He played alongside enfant terrible Hristo Stoichkov, and the legendary Ronald Koeman. Not only he won the Champions League (called differently back then) in 1992, he also won 4 consecutive Spanish titles with Barcelona, and after he went to Real Madrid, he won the championship …for the 5th time in a row.

See here why both players are almost identical in vista, style, beauty and efficiency. Do note that the video is about Laudrups 17 years lasting career in total. Eden’s career has just started.

As you can see Eden has also adapted the special move Laudrup is doing several times, by passing the ball from one foot to the next, allowing the ball to slow down, and make the next move to pass the player in speed. Beautiful to see! Very Messi!
