Eden Hazard recently did an interview with NBCSN as part of their series ‘Inside The Mind’. Here are the important quotes related to Chelsea… (full video with more quotes can be found at the end of the article.)

Q. You’ve played a couple of different positions this season. What are the different challenges and which do you prefer?

My position is Left Winger because I start there and most of the time I play there. But, I also like to try something differnt, something new, [like] a number 9 or number 10. But, in the game we move a lot with the players. I just want to go forward, can’t be a defender, that’s for sure!

Q. Do you prefer to score goals or to make goals?

I like to say that I prefer to assist but I firstly I want to enjoy on the pitch. If sometimes I can score the winning goal, it’s not a bad feeling.

Q. Is there one particular [goal] you remember?


Just because you are here [he was speaking to Arlo White] I want to say this goal against Tottenham. This goal was special for me beacuse I played a bad season [that] year but [the 45 minutes I played against Tottenham was very good and the goal was also good.] For the fans, for me, it was something special.

Something important which I am not going to quote because it’s not related to Chelsea, but he did mention that Zidane was his idol growing up (as we all know by now!) and at the moment he admires Modric and Salah… Modric and Zidane? Real Madrid? Anyone…?

Q. What footballing achievement would you still ike to achieve before you retire?

I don’t want to talk about trophies because [now] players just talk about trophies. I just want to stay myself, try to be happy on the pitch, make fans happy. That’s why I’m playing and I just want to keep on doing that.
