Eden Hazard left wide open the possibility of playing for Real Madrid someday and said it was “incredible” when he first heard their coach, Zinedine Zidane, praise his game.
“I remember 10 years ago when [Zidane] spoke about me for the first time. It was incredible,” Hazard said. “He was my hero when I was a boy. I watched thousands of his videos and now he is the manager of one of the best clubs in the world, so yes, it is great.
“But I do not want to stop. I want to keep working, putting in the effort on the pitch, and then I am delighted when people like him talk about me.”
“This season for us is maybe not the same as last year, of course, and they are obviously very good,” Hazard said. “But in the end, it is a knockout game and you never know what will happen. That is why we love football. I am sure we can beat them if we all play together. We will see what happens.”
“What happens is we won last year and now the fans want us to win this year, too,” he said. “But the Premier League is very difficult. We have lost some games this year and we still have three months left. We also still have the FA Cup and the Champions League. The season could even end up a good one.
“We feel bad at the moment, but we must look at things at the end of the season. We give everything on the pitch. Sometimes things do not go as we trained, like now, but we could still win a trophy.”
