The 29-year-old striker often praises Hazard and refers to the Belgium international as his brother.

“Hazard is a nice kid, you know, I like him. I’m five years older than him so for me he’s like my little brother, and I just want to take care of him,” Ba said in an interview with the Telegraph.

Ba recently invited Hazard as well as former Chelsea teammate John Terry to a charity dinner on 25 May 2015.

The Senegalese internationals joined the Black Eagles on a €6 million move from Chelsea this summer and wears the number nine shirt for the Black Eagles.

The powerful striker already has 27 goals and seven assists for Beşiktaş this season.
