Hazard discusses changing his approach as he gets older

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.”
