Chelsea hero Hazard: Tough to admit – but I really liked Arsenal


Real Madrid attacker Eden Hazard admits he growing up an Arsenal fan.

The Belgian winger broke through at Lille and joined Chelsea in 2012, going on to score 110 goals in 352 appearances for the Blues.

But as a boy, his admiration was for their London rivals Arsenal thanks to their exciting French heroes.

Hazard told On The Front Foot: “When I was little the team I watched the most was the French national team.

“For me, the players I looked up to were Zinedine Zidane and Thierry Henry.

“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.”
