Eden Hazard said, “I just want to say thank you,’ said the Belgian. ‘The three nominees all deserved it but it’s me! We know it’s a collective sport but individually trophies are sometimes good, so I’ll take this one home and enjoy it with my family.
‘When I play I try to give my best on the pitch. I like the applause and when the fans come they want to see a spectacle.”
Spanish full back Cesar Azpilicueta scooped the Players’ Player of the Year award, beating John Terry and Gary Cahill . Azpilicueta has been exceptional this season for the London club. He’s taken over the place of Ashley Cole and established himself well as Chelsea’s primary Left Back.
