Chelsea star Eden Hazard has ruled himself out of this year’s Ballon d’Or award, stating that he does not deserve to win it.

The Belgium international has been shortlisted in this year’s list, making it his third time after coming 8th in 2015 and 19th in 2017. This time again, he feels he does not deserve it because he has not worked hard enough.

Hazard’s claim comes when he is enjoying a very good form and being one of the best players in the West London club with 8 goals this season and 4 assists to his name.

Although, the Belgium international says he does not feel motivated by individual awards as he stated that some players deserve it ahead because they have been better.

Therefore, Hazard pointed at French giants Paris St Germain star Kylian Mbappe as the best candidate for the award because he has been consistent and scoring goals as well.

Hazard is of the opinion that Spanish giants Real Madrid star Luka Modric would have been a better candidate for the award also but because he has been little quiet especially in the months of August and September.

However, Hazard has his focus on a title win this season with manager Maurizio Sarri.
