Eden Hazard named Player of the Year


Recommended Posts

Chelsea's Belgian wing wizard Eden Hazard has been crowned as the PFA Player of the Year for 2014/15.

At an awards ceremony in London on Sunday evening, Hazard, who signed for the Blues in the summer of 2012, was named ahead of Chelsea team-mate Diego Costa, Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho, Manchester United’s David de Gea and Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

One of six Chelsea players selected in the Premier League's team of the season - alongside Costa, Nemanja Matic, John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill - Hazard, last season's Young Player of the Year, has gone one step better in picking up the major honour.

In the absence of top scorer Costa in recent weeks, Hazard has stepped to the fore and has almost single-handedly propelled the Blues towards the Premier League title with important goalscoring contributions in recent weeks, not least against Manchester United last weekend.

With thirteen league goals and eight assists to his name, Hazard has completed significantly more dribbles and attracted more fouls than any other player in the Premier League. He is the second Chelsea player, after John Terry in 2005, to receive the award.


‘What I did this season is play very well, Chelsea played very well. I don't know if I deserve to win but it is good for me', he said upon receiving the award.
‘I started the season not to be the PFA Player of the Year but it was in my head. I want to be the best and I hope one day I can win a lot of trophies.
'I'm very happy', he continued. 'I try to score more goals than last season. Personally I have played a good season, I have been there in the big games and I scored a lot of important goals, this is why I'm better this season.
‘It is better to be voted by the players. They know everything about football. This is good'.

So happy he decided to join us when he was leaving Lille. That saga doesn't represent Eden. He is a 'fair' player: doesn't dive or cheat. Everytime when he has got the ball you just have that feeling that something good is going to happen. Not many players have that quality. He is a player who would be one of my favorites even though he played for some other club.

This is a great honour for him and I hope he continues his development with us for years to come!
