Eden Hazard wins hearts again by helping Chelsea fan suffering from amnesia
He isn’t the “Player of the Year” anymore, but Belgium and Chelsea star Eden Hazard is still the number one man to his fans. In an incredible gesture, the superstar has gone out of his way to help a Chelsea fan who has been suffering from amnesia.
Vladimir Howard, a Chelsea superfan who had never missed a home game before, suffered a fractured cheekbone after being attacked in a South London street last year. The injury left him with amnesia and he can no longer remember the events from last year. Being an uber Chelsea fan, it was incredibly difficult for Vladimir as he was unable to remember the 2014-15 Premier League title win.
The 36-year-old, who is a carpenter by profession, has been trying to regain some memory by watching his team’s performance through YouTube videos. When Eden came to know about his suffering, the footballer sent him a signed DVD of Chelsea’s 2014-15 Premier League title-winning campaign.
This gesture from the superstar was not lost on Vladimir as he was clearly impressed and reportedly admitted, “This is really going to help. Watching on YouTube has been helping me remember but this is much, much better,' he said. "It's is nice of Eden to think of me. From now in he is my top man.” He also added, "I love Chelsea and because the club is a big part of my life I'm sure this will trigger the memories."
Eden played a pivotal role last season and was awarded the 2014-15 PFA Player of the Year award. Although he didn’t pick up the Barclays Golden Boot award in 2014/15 (that went to Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero), he was the best player in the EPL by a long shot with his incredible efficiency and work-rate. He created an admirable 101 number of goal scoring chances and topped the list of most dribbles completed as well as most duels won.
