Belgium international and Chelsea player, Eden Hazard has been named the Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year 2014/15. The 24 year-old’s performances for the Blues this season have been exceedingly impressive and he has been largely instrumental to Chelsea’s title chase.
An elated Hazard said, “I’m very happy. One day I want to be the best and what I did this season is play very well, Chelsea played very well. I don’t know if I deserve to win but it is good for me. It is good, it is better to be voted by the players – they know everything about football. This is good. I’m very happy.”
He added, “I continue like I did last season – I try to be the same. I try to score more goals than last season [when he scored 17]. Personally I have played a good season, I have been there in the big games and I scored a lot of important goals, this is why I’m better this season.
“Jose lets me play, we talk together sometimes and when I’m on the pitch I know what I have to do – this is most important. We are almost there to win the league.”
The attacker who won the award last year edged out the likes of Harry Kane and David de Gea to win the trophy. The young player of the year prize was scooped by Tottenham’s Kane.
