Eden Hazard

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has admitted ‘he’s not selfish enough’ to win the Ballon d’Or and insists he is happy to be a team player.

In what’s been a frustrating season for Chelsea, Hazard has still been able to capture the excitement from Blues fans in scoring 16 goals this season as he still plays a valuable role for his team.

The 27-year-old insists that the Ballon d’Or has become an accolade for players that are selfish on the pitch, as he’s quoted by the BBC saying:

“I think football now if you want to win something like the Ballon d’Or or top scorer, you need to be selfish. I am not this.”

Hazard Saints
Out of Eden Hazard’s 16 goals this season, 12 of them came in the Premier League.

Hazard, has been branded as one of the best players in the world and a potential Ballon D’Or winner in recent years. However, Chelsea’s occasional struggles, especially this season, has a negative impact on the Belgian winning such a prestigious global honour.

It’s perhaps for this reason why Hazard has been linked with Real Madrid, a club that could certainly launch the winger’s career even further.

Hopefully Hazard’s demands of wanting a stronger squad around him at Chelsea, as reported by the BBC, can be the platform for greater things in this marvellous player’s tenure at SW6.
