Hazard Named As Chelsea Player Of The Year

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has stated that he tries to play football the same way every time, but sometimes it does not come about successful. The Belgian midfielder has been one of the best players in the Premier League this campaign. He won the PFA Young Player of the Year award this season, but lost out to Luis Suarez for the senior award. During the end of the season awards at Chelsea, Hazard was named as the club’s Player of the Year.

The award was presented to him by manager José Mourinho, who has been engaged in a war of words with the players over the last few weeks. The fallout was due to the Champions League exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid. Hazard criticised the manager for his defensive tactics in the match, while Mourinho responded by saying that it was the players mistake to allow the opposition to score two of the three goals. After having finished the season with 17 goals for the season, the midfielder says that he is now looking to score more goals next campaign.

It is heavily expected that Chelsea will strengthen the squad up front by buying a couple of prolific strikers, as this was their major problem throughout the season.

“I know maybe I have to do better in training or on the pitch. I want to score more and help the team score more goals and next season I hope we can be better. I try to play like I did when I was a young boy playing in my garden. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not so good but I try to always make sure I give my best to help the team, even if I am not having the best game myself,” said Hazard after scooping up the club awards.
