Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard has revealed the main reason as to why he will not win the Ballon d’Or in the near future unless…
When we think of the best players in the world that could rival Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the Ballon d’Or, there are just a handful of names that come up; Eden Hazard is definitely one of them. The Belgian has been lurking in and around that award but has never really been a serious contender to beat the Portuguese and Argentine forwards, who have shared the honor 5 times each in the past decade.
And although the star winger from Stamford Bridge is just 27 years old, he still has not reached the peak of his full ability. The greatest individual award that Hazard has won so far in his career was back in the 2014-15 season as he clinched the PFA Players’ Player of the Year when Chelsea secured the Premier League title.
Hazard has netted 12 times and notched up six assists for the Blues this campaign and has arguably been the clubs best player along with Willian. However, the star winger believes that he might have to change his game slightly in order to win the elusive individual award.
Hazard Reveals Why He Has Not Won the Ballon d’Or-
In a recent interview with BBC, the Chelsea attacking midfielder stated that his father’s influence has altered him from becoming the best footballer ever. Hazard said in order to be crowned the Ballon d’Or; he will need to be more selfish, “[My father] always told me that. Maybe it’s true. I think, in football now, if you want to win something like the Ballon d’Or or [to be the] top-scorer, you need to be selfish. But I’m not like this, not at all. I’m just who I am.”
Chelsea faces Manchester United in the FA Cup final and Hazard will be hoping to add another trophy to his collection.
In order for Hazard to be considered the best player in the world, he may have to leave Chelsea and join a club that is at the top of their game every season. Or else needs to make sure that he individually carries his team himself, something he does more often than not. But moving to Real Madrid would certainly take Hazard’s game to the next level.
