Eden Hazard has finally spoken on the comparisons between him and the two stalwarts of world football Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Hazard clarified in an interview that it is impossible for him to achieve the heights of Ronaldo and Messi and he does not have the mentality to become like the two superstars.
A month back Chelsea manager had drawn comparisons between his star player and Cristiano Ronaldo and mentioned that at present Hazard is much better than Ronaldo. Hazard had scored 19 goals last season for the club and was the main architect behind the title triumph of the club.
Differing from his manager’s viewpoint Eden Hazard has said it is not possible for him to be at par with the two stars who have made a habit of scoring 50 plus goals in a single season.
Speaking to Sport/Foot Magazine, Hazard said: “I often ask myself what I can do to become like Messi and Ronaldo and score 50 or 60 goals in a season.
“I try, of course, but I realise that I will never be a true scorer. It’s not in me. It is mainly mental – at 2-0, not thinking that is enough, for example. Sometimes I still think, after a goal, ‘that’s enough’.
“I’m not in search of records like some other players… if I can score between 15 and 20 goals each season, I will be very happy.
“I’m at a peak of my career, but I want to become even better every day. I’m not there yet.”
Eden Hazard most definitely is one of the best players in the world right now and will become a future superstar. Even though his goal scoring ability is not at par with the Argentine and the Portuguese but his influence on a team like Chelsea is commendable.
Hazard will be one of the best players in the world in the days to come.
