Eden Hazard Snubs Messi And Ronaldo In His Pick For The Ballon d'Or

Eden Hazard has found himself amongst 29 other footballers vying for the 2018 Ballon d'Or.

The Chelsea star had a fantastic World Cup with Belgium over the summer and has continued to maintain that form for his club at the start of the Premier League season.

There are some people that would believe the 27-year-old Belgian could be one of the players to break the deadlock that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have had over the award since 2008.

Hazard, on the other hand, believes that neither of the five-time Ballon d'Or winners should win it this year and has snubbed both names on his list.

In fact, he's revealed his personal pick for one of football's most coveted prize.

"I do not think it will be me, I believe Luka Modrić deserves it," he said (via GiveMeSport).

"There are three or four players who have had elite years, you could say that Raphaël Varane deserves it because he has won the two most important trophies, nobody else did.

"I would not be lying by saying that I have a case for winning the award, too, but I seriously believe that Modrić will win it.

"It would be a deserving reward for his wonderful season in the Champions League and in the World Cup, where he was magnificent."

Hazard has scored eight times for Chelsea in the league this season, though his future at the London club is uncertain after his candid comments made on Real Madrid.

The Belgian ace, however, told SPORTbible in an interview that he has big hopes for the Blues this season.

"Stay in the top four, win the league of course but we know it's going to be difficult because three or four teams can win," he said.

"Be back in the Champions League next year and try to win a cup or Europa League. It's going to be good."
