The Zambian player described Barcelona forward Messi as the greatest, and Real Madrid’s Hazard as a complete player.

“Lionel Messi is the Barcelona all-time player. He is also my best footballer of all time, he is the GOAT,” Chama said in his answer to one of the Simba fans during a question and answer session with supporters on his Instagram page.

“[Eden] Hazard is a complete player he might not have had a good season so far at the new club but he is a whole player.

"Both [Paul Pogba and Kevin De Bruyne] are good players but in my team, I will go with De Bruyne.”

The 28-year-old Chipolopolo midfielder also explained why he supports Barcelona as well as Liverpool in England.
