Fabregas: “Hazard can win the Ballon d’Or at Real Madrid”

30 May 2019

Eden Hazard scored a brace and provided an assist as Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final on Wednesday evening.

Such was the quality of his performance, and his season as a whole, that Cesc Fabregas stated that the Belgian could win the Ballon d’Or at Real Madrid, where he is expected to move in the coming weeks.

“Unfortunately, I don’t think Chelsea at this moment can give him what he deserves,” Fabregas told BT Sport.

“In terms of potentially winning absolutely everything, and even talking about the Ballon d’Or… I know he says he doesn’t mind about it, but deep down he does. He really wants to win the Champions League.

“I think that there is currently a ceiling at Chelsea and he can go so much higher than this ceiling at a club like Real Madrid because these clubs – Real MadridBarcelona, now Manchester CityBayern Munich – always come back.

“They will have terrible seasons at Real Madrid, but they will be back. No doubt about it.”
