Chelsea midfielder, Eden Hazard has admitted that he “will never be a true scorer” in the class of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
This is coming on the heels of his coach, Jose Mourinho claiming the 24 year old is better than Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, the PFA and Football Writers’ Player of the Year, who played a key role in helping Chelsea win the English Premier League last season, has confessed he is not rivalling Messi or Ronaldo who both have been honoured with the World Best Player award and have consistently scored more goals than the Chelsea playmaker.
“I often ask myself what I can do to become like Messi and Ronaldo and score 50 or 60 goals in a season. I try of course but I realise that I will never be a true scorer. It’s not in me. It is mainly mental – at 2-0, not thinking that is enough, for example. Sometimes I still think, after a goal, ‘that’s enough’.
“I’m not in search of records like some other players… if I can score between 15 and 20 goals each season, I will be very happy.
“I’m at a peak of my career but I want to become even better every day. I’m not there yet,” Eden made this known in an interview he granted Sport/Foot Magazine.
