Chelsea star Eden Hazard has discussed the possibility of becoming Chelsea captain, report Sky Sports.
When quizzed about whether he could wear the Blues armband in the future, Sky Sports quote Hazard respectfully saying: “John Terry is still there. I don’t want to touch John Terry.”
Sky Sports also report Hazard going on to explain that he doesn’t feel he could ever be like Terry as a captain: “I can’t be like John Terry, I can’t be like him. As a captain I don’t talk too much, I try to talk with my feet on the pitch. This is my job.”
Belgium manager named Hazard as captain for their friendly against Netherlands on Wednesday. Sky Sports believe that he will also be given the armband for their upcoming World Cup qualifier against Estonia.
Terry has been Chelsea captain through the most successful period in the club’s history. He’s lifted the Premier League title four times and if the Blues continue to play the play they have in recent weeks, there’s every possibility he could have his hands on another come May.
Hazard has also been a leader for Chelsea during his time at Stamford Bridge, but not as many may expect. During tough moments he has continually stepped up and swung the game in his side’s favour. It’s a different style of leadership to the one that has been so successful for Terry, but every bit as effective.
