"Old man" Eden Hazard ready for new season


Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard says he is looking forward to the new season after enjoying holidays with his family.

The Belgium international won the Professional Footballers Association’s player of the year award last season.

And he was also voted the 2015 Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association after a brilliant campaign at Stamford Bridge.

He will be again determined to help Chelsea win trophies, starting from the FA Community Shield against Arsenal on August 2.

"It's good to be back," Hazard told the club's official website.

"I had a great holiday. I went away with my family, and now I'm ready to be on the pitch again and get back to work.

"I can't say I really enjoy training right now because we do a lot of running and work hard, but it's good to be there and work on your fitness a little bit more than during the season when you do a lot of recovery and technical work.

"Now I am starting my fourth season here and I am an old man at Chelsea!

"I know all the guys and the staff well. I feel settled and comfortable with everybody and I think it's very good to stay at one club for a long time."
