Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard has stated the reasons he will never win the Ballon d’Or in his career.

The Ballon d’Or, in the past ten years, has been won between Barcelona star, Lionel Messi and Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Hazard is one of the best players in the world when in form, and ended the season as the Blues’ top scorer with 16 goals and ten assists.

The Belgium international reigns as Chelsea’s talisman and won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award in 2015 after helping his side win the Premier League.

The 27-year-old, however, admitted he thinks his personality may hold him back from winning football’s greatest individual honour, adding that he is not selfish enough on the pitch.

“[My father] always told me that. Maybe it’s true,” Hazard told BBC Sport when asked about his selfless nature on the pitch.

“I think, in football now, if you want to win something like the Ballon d’Or or [to be the] top scorer, you need to be selfish. But I’m not like this, not at all. I’m just who I am.”
