Belgium’s Lukaku Admits Wales Gareth Bale Is Better Than Team-Mate Eden Hazard
Belgium defender Jordan Lukaku has expressed his opinion the about the ongoing Hazard vs Bale debate stating that he feels the Welshman is better than his team-mate.
In an interview to Walesonline.co.uk Jordan said that while Bale has proven his mettle after consistent performances for a couple of years now, Hazard has not lived upto the standards and lacks consistency.
The two players will fight for supremacy as they face eachother in the Quarter-Finals when Wales lock horns with Belgium.
Lukaku said “Bale is for me perhaps slightly higher than Hazard. He’s been playing longer at that level.”
“At key moments at club level Bale is the man and he stands there, while Hazard is still not consistent.”
Lukaku also said that the Belgium side were focusing on Wales as a team and not individuals, saying that they were ready for any challenge that Wales put forward.
“The staff will devise a plan to neutralise Bale and Aaron Ramsey because they are the strongest players Wales have.”
“We will find a way to counter them but it will not be one player, it will be the whole team.”
Jordan is the younger brother of Belgium and Everton’s star striker Romelu Lukaku, who has had a decent EURO 2016 campaign scoring 3 goals.
