Eden Hazard has delivered an ominous warning to Chelsea’s rivals after admitting he can become and even better player.
The Belgian playmaker was Chelsea’s top scorer last season with 14 Premier League goals and he also contributed more assists than any of his team-mates.
At the same time, Hazard averaged more successful dribbles than any other player in the 2013/14 English top flight and that form earned him a place on the Ballon d’Or shortlist.
The £32million summer 2012 signing from Lille has as a result become one of the most feared players in the Premier League, Europe and around the world.
But the bad news for Chelsea’s title rivals is that the 23-year-old thinks there is still room for improvement as he aims to bring more trophies to Stamford Bridge.
“I can be better,” Hazard exclusively told Sky Sports.
“Last season was very good, and the first season [at Chelsea] as well. Now I am in the third season and if I can win trophies, it could be better.
“Personally, if I continue like this and score more goals and make more assists but most important is trophies at the end.”
After helping Chelsea to a 3-1 victory over Burnley in their first game of the campaign, next in Hazard’s firing line are Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
But, before then, the Chelsea star was speaking to Sky Sports as he was being unveiled as the new pack star of FIFA 15 and he was relishing the experience.
“We are here for FIFA 15 and I did some skills on the pitch. It was good,” he said.
