Chelsea’s Eden Hazard eyes silverware after signing new deal
Chelsea forward Eden Hazard says he feels good at Stamford Bridge
Eden Hazard has spoken of his delight at signing a five-and-a-half-year contract extension to take his stay at Chelsea into the next decade.
The Belgian, 24, joined the Blues from Lille for an estimated £32m in 2012, and was voted the PFA’s young player of the year after an impressive second season in west London.
I always try to give pleasure to the supporters with my style of play and it is nice to know they appreciate my work
Hazard is a key component of the club’s attacking midfield trio, and has scored nine league goals so far this season.
Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Hazard said: “Since I came here in 2012, I have always felt good and the club has been very supportive to me.
“I hope to repay that support by helping to win trophies, beginning with the Capital One Cup at Wembley in March, and after that, we can push hard towards the end of the season.”
Chelsea’s reigning Player of the Year topped the club’s goal scoring charts last season, scoring 17 in all competitions – 14 of which came in the Premier League.
He has continued with his rich vein of form into this season, and has received widespread acclaim for the exciting, attacking dimension he brings to his side.
“I always try to give pleasure to the supporters with my style of play and it is nice to know they appreciate my work,” said Hazard.
Hazard has helped Chelsea win the Europa League since he completed a big-money move to Chelsea from Ligue 1 side Lille two-and-a-half season ago.
