Chelsea star Eden Hazard says that wants to add a killer instinct to his game and emulate the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of his goal tally, which ought to put the frighteners on the rest of the Premier League.
The Belgian move to Stamford Bridge from Lille last summer for £32 million and had a bright debut season with 13 goals and 25 assists in all competitions. He believes he sometimes over elaborates on the ball and that he could be more effective, and has promised to continue to work hard in order to develop his game.
“Every year, I am improving and getting better and better, but I want to be even more effective.
“My dream is 50 or even 60 goals like Messi and Ronaldo. They have shown it is possible, so maybe I can do the same.
“I had a lot of assists last season and a few goals, but the problem is that I tend to choose the beautiful option too often and dribble with the ball, when a different way might cause more damage.
“Sometimes I lack the killer instinct, but I mean to change that. I need to shoot more, rather than look to do something that looks nice, and that is what I will be trying to do next season.”
Refreshing words from the 22-year-old, who is a future Ballon d’Or winner in my opinion and it’s great to see that he has the confidence to say that he will try to have the sort of impact Messi and Ronaldo have for their teams.
He also spoke of how he is looking forward to working with Chelsea’s new coach Jose Mourinho and Hazard seems like the type that’s willing to learn, unlike Ronaldo, who was recently labelled a bit of a know-it-all that did not react well to constructive criticism by the Portuguese manager.
We only say a glimpse of what Hazard is capable of during the 2012-13 campaign and with a new coach coming in along with a few wise signings should help provide a much better springboard from him to attack from next season as we’re lacking in a few key areas (defence, central midfield & a forward…basically the spine of the team).
