2018 Ballon d’Or: Hazard Names 2 Deserving Players

Chelsea player, Eden Hazard, has said he does not deserve to win the Ballon d’Or this year.

Hazard was among the shortlisted players by the award organizers last month.

The Belgian came eighth in 2015 and 19th last year.

He had an impressive World Cup campaign, and has enjoyed a superb start to the 2018-19 Premier League season.

However, the 27-year-old said he does not deserve to win the Ballon d’Or award.

He named PSG and Real Madrid stars, Kylian Mbappe and Luka Modric as more suitable picks.

“Even though I had a very good year, I have to keep my feet on the ground,” Hazard told RTFB.

“I do not deserve the Ballon d’Or. I think there are players who have been better than me.

“Winning the Ballon d’Or is not a goal for me. If I win it one day, great. If I do not, it won’t be a problem.

“I would have said Luka Modric but he has played a little less well since August and September.

“So, if we take into account the beginning of the season, I would say Kylian Mbappe.”
