Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes there’s a new maturity about Chelsea magician Eden Hazard, both on and off the pitch.
Hazard has returned to form this season after his struggles last season and the Belgian is among the favourites to win the PFA Player of the Year award.
Lampard told Goals on Sunday: “For me, there’s a new maturity about him – not just on the pitch, but off the pitch.
“He’s doing more interviews, he’s speaking English, and those things important when you become a player of his level.
“I think last year, and I am huge Eden Hazard fan, there were times when he was so confident in his ability that he would beat someone twice in midfield – he’d beat them and then beat them again.
“Now, there is a real directness to his play. He’s more efficient and getting into areas to score goals.”
