Eden Hazard: “I will never be a true scorer”

The Chelsea superstar has recently come out and mentioned how he can never replicate what Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are doing.

With 19 goals to his name in all competitions last season, manager Jose Mourinho and team-mate Cesc Fabreas were among those to hail Hazard’s potential.

However, the 24-year-old says that he is not convinced of rivaling Ronaldo or Messi – who have been crowned the world’s best player five times between them – in terms of goals.

“I often ask myself what I can do to become like Messi and Ronaldo and score 50 or 60 goals in a season,” Hazard told Sport/Foot Magazine.

“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.”
