Eden Hazard says he does not deserve to win the Ballon dOr this year.

Last month, the Belgian was named on the shortlist for the award for a third time. Hazard came eighth in 2015 and 19th last year.

After enjoying a fine World Cup campaign, Hazard has enjoyed a superb start to the 2018-19 season, scoring eight goals and providing four assists.

Despite this, the 27-year-old says he does not deserve to take home the Ballon dOr award, with Kylian Mbappe or Luka Modric more suitable picks.

Even though I had a very good year, I have to keep my feet on the ground, Hazard told RTFB.

Winning the Ballon dOr is not a goal for me. If I win it one day, great. If I do not, it wont be a problem.

I would have said Luka Modric but he has played a little less well since August and September.

So, if we take into account the beginning of the season, I would say Kylian Mbappe.

Olivier Giroud, meanwhile, has revealed why he said f**k the first time he saw Hazard in Chelsea training following his move from Arsenal.

The France international said: When I discover Eden Hazard in training for my first session at Chelsea. I told myself: “F**k, its hard to get the ball off him”.

Sometimes, theres two or three players around him and he still manages to get out in tight spaces.

Hes a magician, hes impressive. Now, Ive started to know him and I dont find myself near him. Its better for him and for me.
