Eden Hazard reveals his favourite position for Chelsea FC
Eden Hazard opens up about his top position for Chelsea FC
Eden Hazard has revealed that he like to be deployed in a number 10 position for Chelsea FC but he also enjoys being given a free role.
The 27-year-old is widely considered to be one of the Premier League’s finest attacking talents, with the playmaker having impressed since signing for the Blues from French side Lille back in 2012.
Hazard has helped Chelsea FC to win two Premier League titles since his move to the west London club and he also fired the Blues to FA Cup glory this term.
The playmaker scored the winner from the penalty spot as Chelsea FC claimed a 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley earlier in the month.
There has been much debate about Hazard’s best position for Chelsea FC, and the player himself has now spoken out about where he feels he can perform best for the Blues.
Speaking to BT Sport, Hazard said: “For me, I like to stay in the middle and then move.
“It’s not just as a number 10. I like to go sometimes on the left. If I take the ball and do something good, I will stay on the left.
“If I do something bad on the right, I will move on the left.”
Hazard’s future at Chelsea FC is likely to be a source of speculation this summer after the Blues failed to qualify for the Champions League for next season.
It was a disappointing second campaign for Antonio Conte, as the Blues ended up fifth and missed out on Champions League qualification.
