Eden Hazard talks to Dernière Heure

Belgium news outlet Dernière Heure have sat down recently with Chelsea star Eden Hazard to discuss a range of issues.

Hazard has been one of Chelsea’s best players this season, and he’s been nominated for the PFA player of the year award this season.

So does the Belgian think he’s playing better this season than before?

Talks about Michy Batshuayi

Hazard was also drawn into discussing how Michy Batshuayi is getting on at Chelsea.

Signed for over 30 million pounds last summer from Marseille, the Belgium striker has barely featured for the Blues this term as it’s become obvious Antonio Conte isn’t his biggest fan.

In a warning one suspects Batshuayi to heed, his international team mate has now advised him to leave Stamford Bridge. Hazard told DH:

The advice I give to any player who lacks playing time is you have to play.

He must try to play more at Chelsea. Or he finds another club to bounce back.

It is not easy, he had a good season in Marseille, a season with being able to play and score.

But it will serve as an experiment. I get along very well with him, I wish him to rediscover the pleasure of playing, scoring goals as he has been able to do for several years, be it at Standard [Liege] or Marseille. He has this quality: He is a great striker.

What else did he say?

Hazard also took part in a quick-fire Q&A with Dernière Heure dishing dirt on his Belgium buddies. That included the following disclosures:

Q: The most talkative?
A: Thibaut (Courtois), he talks a lot. He speaks all languages.

Q: The funniest?
A: It’s between Mousa Dembelé and Jan Vertonghen.

Q: The smartest?
A: Dries (Mertens). Because in training he always manages to get into the right positions in small games. Here I’m speaking about on the field but it is obvious that he must be smart in life.

Q: The best dressed?
A: It depends what is called” being well dressed. “This is not to launch her flowers but I find that Thorgan dresses well.”

Q: The greediest?
A: Romelu (Lukaku). Because of his weight, he eats a lot. It could have been me too but I prefer to say ‘Rom’.
