Eden Hazard’s Top 5 Favorite Players of All Time

2 of 6

5. Juan Roman Riquelme

One of the surprise inclusions on the list, Argentine playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme was a legend at both Villarreal and Boca Juniors. Much like Hazard, Riquelme would dictate play from his attacking midfield position, break inside to release rocket shots, and provide assists to his teammates. Riquelme was disappointing at Barcelona because he was often played out of position but during his loan to Villareal he blossomed on the European stage. His greatest moments were in either an Argentina or Boca Juniors shirt and he still continues to ply his trade for the Buenos Aires club.
