Name Eden Hazard
Gender Male
Ethnic Belgian
Job Belgian Footballer
Desc Irresistible at his absolute best and one of the very few players capable of not only deciding games on his own, but doing so without the help of team-mates. The Belgian showcases total control when dribbling the ball, a skill he can stake claim to be the very best at throughout his time in the league. The finest player in the league in two title-winning seasons, Hazard is a true Premier League great who may only be appreciated when he has gone

[Belgium playmaker Eden Hazard reveals how life has been under new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte] Conte puts trust in his players and now we are good after an ugly season last year. I’ve always been the same player, but Conte knows how to treat players, having played at the highest level himself

[Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard tells he wants to be one of the top-five footballers in the world] Last season I wasn’t good, so for me it’s normal that I’m not on the list. I want to come back and give everything to be on the list – not to be in the top 23, but to be in the top five. I want to reach this level

[Eden Hazard speaks after scoring against Arsenal in a 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge] When I get a lot of kicks, I feel I’m really in the game. When people don’t touch me, that means I’m not doing well, I’m no good

[Eden Hazard praises team-mate N’Golo Kante] One on the left and one on the right. I think I’m playing with twins. He is a fantastic player, he helps the team a lot and we are happy to have him on the team

[Hazard admitts his admiration for Madrid] Madrid interest me, everyone knows. If they want to sign me, they know what they have to do

[Eden Hazard talks about former Blues team-mate and close friend Mohamed Salah] He did not get his chance at Chelsea – maybe because of the manager, because of the other players? I don’t know. He has quality but in that period I remember we had me, Willian, Oscar, so for him it was not easy. But he’s a top player, for sure, and we know as a team the quality he has. He is a fantastic striker and this season he has scored a lot of goals

[Hazard admitts his admiration for Madrid] You know I have always liked Real Madrid, even before Zidane. After this year I have a year left on my contract, so we’ll see

[Eden Hazard responds to Thibaut Courtois’ comments and says his re-signing with Chelsea may be dependent on his Belgian counter-part doing the same] (Laughs) I’m going to say the same thing as Courtois: first he has to sign, then I might follow. I don’t know who’ll be the first to sign a new deal. That’s a secret

[Eden Hazard on the Ballon d’Or] I do not deserve the Ballon d’Or. I think there are players, who have been better than me. I would have said Luka Modric, but he plays a little less well since August or September, so if we take into account the beginning of the season, I would say Kylian Mbappe. The goal for me is not to have the Ballon d’Or, it is to maximise fun on the pitch. If I win it one day, so much the better, if I don’t, it will not be a problem

[Eden Hazard tells who he thinks is the best footballer of all time] Two G.O.A.T.s you say? No way. There is only one G.O.A.T [Greatest Of All Time]: Him, Lionel Messi!

[Eden Hazard had kind words for both when asked to compare the Real Madrid coach and his own for Belgium] I have a lot of respect for [Zinedine Zidane]. He was my idol. Thanks to him I began playing. But for the wins achieved with [Roberto Martinez], I choose him

[Eden Hazard speaks about Belgium’s 2-1 quarter-final win over Brazil] This victory against Brazil was my best game in the individual aspect as well as the collective one. I perfectly succeeded in everything I was trying to do. Just like the team. We were not seen as the favourites, as Brazil is one of the best nations. We had trouble in the second half and had a bit of luck too. But it’s still the most accomplished thing I have achieved, all teams included. The best result in the history of Belgium. We lost in the semi-finals against France on a corner. I will remember the feeling we left. We were not the best. But all the testimonials that I receive tell me that the most beautiful team was Belgium, I like to emphasise the pleasure and the memory that we have left

[Eden Hazard insists he would only ever return to France to play for Lille] I will never play for PSG. They have wanted me many times. I don’t have any intention to return to a Ligue 1 club other than Lille. I have always said no to them [PSG]

In my head everything is clear. It is a team that would give you a chance of winning the Champions League, but they are not among my priorities. If I return to Ligue 1, it will be Lille

[Asked whether Chelsea can win at Manchester City this Saturday] Of course I think so. It’s not going to be easy. It’s hard to play there. Last time we played them we lost 6-0, so bad memories for me and for Chelsea as well but I think this season they are really good. They are really young, but they are really good, so why not go there and win the game?

When I watch them, no Hazard but it’s a party! They can score, they score a lot of goals, the fans are happy, they are third in the league, so it’s going to be a great season. They just need to stay there, win games and that’s it

[Eden Hazard on Karim Benzema] I think that, right now, he’s the best striker in the world

[Eden Hazard admitts that he’s hoping Kylian Mbappe joins him at Real Madrid] If I could bring Mbappe [to Real Madrid] … he’ll be the best in the world within the next few years. There are many young players that have high potential but, if Kylian continues like this, he’ll be one of the best players in history. By 20 years old, I’d already been champion of France with Lille, but in terms of statistics, there’s no comparison [between me and Mbappe]. I was developing bit by bit. Mbappe is already in his peak at 20

[Eden Hazard talks about replacing Cristiano Ronaldo in the team] When I go out on to the pitch, I don’t think about the fact that Cristiano was here before me and that I have to do better than him. I’m not going to score more goals than Cristiano Ronaldo, that’s for sure, but I will try to bring what I know I can do. In fact, the difficult thing when I arrived was that I got injured two or three days before the first [LaLiga Santander] match and I was out for four weeks. This delayed my preparation

[Eden Hazard talks about Real Madrid’s expectations of him] Transfers are crazy these days. A footballer should never cost 100 million, but that’s the market [we’re in], I’m not thinking about what I cost. If I’d have cost five million, I would’ve played the same way

[Eden Hazard talks about his idol Zinedine Zidane] Zidane was my idol, [he was] a phenomenal player. I’ve enjoyed working with him for the last four months. I hope we win lots of titles together, that’s why I came to Real Madrid. But he’s no longer my idol, he’s my coach, like Maurizio Sarri or Antonio Conte were at Chelsea. It’s all about me now
