Eden Hazard admits he feels delighted with the World class status currently allotted to him, though confirmed that he is interested in winning trophies.
The Belgian has been in blistering form following his World cup exploits with the Belgium national team, with 6 goals to the current season to ensure that club-side Chelsea remain among title contenders in the current season. He scored a stunning winner at Anfield to ensure Chelsea progressed to the next round.
Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola in his post-match comment, reacted that the goal serves as a proof of the 27yr old elite status in the game. Ross Barkley also added his voice to the Chelsea assistant manager’s voice as he claimed that Hazard is on the same level with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, a view previously aired by club legend John Terry in his Instagram page.
Eden Hazard in an interview with media said: “It is good. I try to do what I can do when I am on the pitch. I am the same player as two years ago, three years ago”. “At the moment, I am just scoring goals, so that is why everyone is talking for me to be in the top three. It is a pleasure to be there. I just want to keep going”.
Maurizio Sarri has earlier stated that Eden Hazard will score up to 40 goals in the current league season but the Belgian in his statement prefers silverware to goals.
He added: “My target is to win something every year, I want to win trophies”. “We won the FA Cup last year. We knew the Premier League is going to be hard because (Manchester) City, Liverpool, they have a lot of good players and good teams. So we will give everything”. “It is not important how many goals I score. You know me, I don’t care about that. I just want to enjoy my football and win games”.
