In an interview with ‘On The Front Foot’, Eden Hazard spoke about his injury problems, amongst other topics, and the Belgian acknowledged that the ordeal that haunts him is “not the end of the world” because he “can spend time with his kids”.
Hazard is experiencing one of the most complicated moments of his professional career. It is possibly affecting the Belgian player’s mental state, and he spoke of the importance of his family for his recovery.
“I’m lucky that when I’m injured and stuck at home, I have my family to get me through. It’s not the end of the world for me because I can spend time with my kids, when you’re alone and injured it can be tough but I’m lucky that I have my family to support me”, the Madrid player said.
Moreover, in the face of the demands placed on his figure, Hazard, who enjoyed a day off, asked for patience because of some physical problems that “take time to heal”. “I just have to wait, work hard to get better and when I’m at home I can enjoy the time with my family”, he added.
About the players he most admires he highlighted: “For me, the players I looked up to were Zinedine Zidane and Thierry Henry, and it’s difficult for me to admit because of my relationship with Chelsea, but I really liked the Arsenal team at the time. They had players like Robert Pires, [Sylvain] Wiltord and [Patrick] Vieira, so it was mainly French players that I followed growing up”, Hazard concluded.
