It is every player’s dream to win the most prestigious award in modern day football..’Ballon d’Or’ and Hazard is not out of it.
The Chelsea star who was among the key performers for the Champions this season,wants to win the Ballon d’Or with Chelsea but that will be when the legends;Ronaldo and Messi (9 Ballon D’Or between them) retires.
“I hope to win the Ballon d’Or one day. It’s in my mind.If I don’t, it won’t be a problem. I try to make a good career the best I can but I think some other players deserve to win it also.”
“When Ronaldo and Messi retire, maybe it will be another couple of players like Neymar, Paulo Dybala or Antoine Griezmann, who knows? We will see. It’s not something I think too much about.”
“Could I win it? If I play next season, we win the Champions League and I win the World Cup with Belgium, why not? In the last 10 years, the Ballon d’Or winners play in Spain, but it’s not automatic. If a player is better in England, he will win it.”he concluded.
Recent rumours had made the rounds in the media concerning an imminent Real Madrid move for Hazard but with this bold statement,it is now obvious he would be staying with Chelsea next season.
