Eden Hazard has opened up about scoring and assisting goals in Champions League.
It’s not only the scoring part he’s proud of – it’s the assists which count a lot to him as well. When asked how he feels about the return of CL, he was ecstatic.
“Yeah, I can’t believe it. I think the world, the people, need to watch football. It gives you happiness; that’s why we all love football. I think it’s now months without the Champions League, this level of games. People just want to watch this,” he told UEFA’s official site.
He also spoke about his favourite CL goal.
“That’s easy because I didn’t score a lot, but I think my first goal [Schalke 0-3 Chelsea, 2013]. The first one is always special, you know. Away in a big game, we played a fantastic game. I could and should have passed to Fernando Torres, but I did it myself, so I was lucky that the ball went in. That’s why it’s my favourite one. I think he [Torres] was waiting for his hat-trick so it was my bad – sorry, Fernando.”
“The feeling is the same when you see the ball in the net. In my mind, I’m not just thinking about scoring goals, scoring goals, scoring goals. Some players now just think about scoring goals. And me? I’m more the kind of player who can create something. That’s why I like to say that I’m more of an assisting guy than a scoring machine. I prefer to make assists, but I also like the feeling when you score a beautiful goal, a last-minute goal, and you win the game at the end.”
