It’s been a long time coming (though not as long as it has been since my last post regarding Chelsea) and nothing that we should have been worried about, if our beloved manager Jose Mourinho is to be taken at his word, but at last our young superstar Eden Hazard has finally put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him at Chelsea until 2020.
I was elated when I heard the news earlier today. Even with the addition of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas this season, I still feel that Hazard is our most key player. He is arguably the best player in the premier league, even if his goal-scoring stats aren’t as prolific as others. You hear other players commending Hazard as the best player they have played against and I think it means a lot more hearing it from other players than reading a stats table.
Since joining Chelsea in 2012 he has matured his game quite a bit, and I look forward to watching his progression continue for many years to come and hope that one day he will lift the Ballon d’Or while still in a Chelsea shirt. Speaking of which, now I can get Hazard 10 jerseys for the family.
