Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has been voted Belgium’s Devil of the Year for the 2017 – an award voted for by Belgians fans for their National Team’s best player.
Hazard topped voting ahead of Manchester City talisman Kevin De Bruyne and Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku, who finished second and third respectively.
De Bruyne, despite starring significantly for Manchester City so far this season as the sky blues of Manchester are currently topping the Premier League table by some distance – with the Belgian chipping in with 6 goals and 9 assists, was voted into second by the fans as they believed his compatriot, Hazard had a better 2017 for ‘The Red Devils’ of Belgium.
Hazard who played 5 times for his country in the year 2017 as opposed to De Bruyne’s 8, scored 3 goals and provided 2 assists as The Belgians cruised to World cup qualification with games to spare.
Those performances saw him grab 10,280 of the votes with Kevin De Bruyne in second getting less than half of that with 4,710 votes and Lukaku in third with 3,223.
Hazard alongside his star studded Belgian National team will be looking towards the World Cup in Russia during the Summer where they being are tipped as one of the favourites for the big prize.
For now, these stars are helping their respective club sides achieve their aims for the season.
