It’s better to be lucky than good, as the dubiously accurate saying goes, though in Eden Hazard’s case, it’s better to be lucky and good. After all, the luck he refers to in this interview with Chelsea TV is just one small part of a series of deft, strong, and generally excellent moves that occurred on his way to scoring a goal of the season candidate against Arsenal last month, which was rightly recognized as February’s Goal of the Month in the Premier League.
“In the end I was a bit lucky to touch the ball with my left foot but in football you have to be lucky sometimes.”
Hazard also jokes that he’s running out of room in his garage for all his trophies. He probably keeps them all in just a big box hidden behind all the other junk that tends to fill people’s garages. An old bicycle, that kayak you were going to use every day, that thing you can’t throw away because you will definitely need it one day (you won’t), that half-finished woodworking project from your handy-man phase, Goal of the Month trophy.
“It’s always special when you score a good goal against Arsenal. We got the three points, that’s the most important thing. I’m happy for the fans.”
