Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has revealed that basketball is his favourite sport away from football
Eden Hazard has revealed that basketball is his favourite sport away from football.
The Chelsea playmaker has hit the ground running since his transfer to Stamford Bridge from Lille last summer, scoring 13 goals in 62 appearances for the Blues.
And the 21-year-old Belgium international, who made 11 Premier League assists last season, says he is a big fan of the NBA.
“Basketball is my other favourite sport. I don’t play, I watch it on TV, the NBA, and I love it,” Hazard told Chelsea’s website.
“It is a very good sport to watch and the NBA is the best I know. The New York Knicks – Carmelo Anthony – the best!
“I have watched it live too, in the O2 Arena last season. It was perfect and I loved it, but I have never seen it in America. I hope one time I will.
“I tried to play myself but I am no good, definitely no good. I play football!”
