Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been awarded the trophy for “Best Belgian Footballer Abroad 2017” in recognition of his form in 2017 which helped Chelsea win the Premier League title.

Hazard was chosen as the winner by a selection of Belgian journalists, football figures and former winners.

“It’s my first trophy in Belgium, but hopefully not my last,” a delighted Hazard said.

“I’m aiming to win the World Cup or the European Championships with Belgium.

“I’m happy with the trophy, but it’s not the most important thing. Football is a collective sport. I would like to thank all my team-mates at Chelsea and the national team, the managers and also those who’ve helped me in the last year.”
