Eden Hazard has discussed his changing approach to his career after scoring his 100th goal for Chelsea on Boxing Day.
The Belgian scored twice as Maurizio Sarri’s side won 2-1 at Watford, with Hazard scoring his 100th and 101st goals for the club with a brace at Vicarage Road.
“Football is my job, but I enjoyed it 20 years ago, I enjoyed it 10 years ago and I enjoy it now. In that respect I haven’t changed a lot.’’ Hazard told reporters after yesterday’s win.
“I prepare for games exactly the same as I did when I was younger. But now the difference is that I am getting older and I need to take more care of my body. I work a bit in the gym with the physio. Five years ago I just enjoyed training and then I went home.
“Now I take my time. Recovery sessions are important for me now. That’s the big change, but after that I’m the same guy, with the same happiness on the pitch.”
