Eden Hazard has been named Europa League Player of the Season 2018-2019 after his goals and that of Olivier Giroud helped Chelsea to win the Europa Cup last season, where they beat Arsenal to lift the cup.
Eden Hazard who now plays for Real Madrid won the award ahead of his former teammate and French and Chelsea forward, Olivier Giroud and Luka Jovic formerly of Eintracht Frankfurt but now Real Madrid.
The Belgian scored two goals in the final as Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 in Baku, though he could not attend the gala because he is injured and is continuing his recovery at Valdebebas, speaking on his Europa League Player of the Season award, the Belgian captain had this to say in a video message:
“Thank you very much for this prize,”
“It is an honour for me, and I want to wish all the players who will play in the Europa League this season a lot of luck” he said.
… most football fans felt Giroud should have won it, since he was the highest goal scorer at the competition last season, and contributed greatly to Chelsea lifting the cup in the finals. But again, Real Madrid board will do anything to get their man up there, and only a Cristiano Ronaldo would understand this…lol.
