The Real Madrid playmaker said he has the illusion of scoring something as important as the one his coach scored in the Champions League final in 2002.
Despite an irregular first season in Real Madrid, Eden Hazard don’t stop dreaming. The Belgian footballer said he dreams of scoring a goal like the one scored by his coach, Zinedine Zidane, at the end of the Champions League 2001-2002.
With that goal in the Hampden Park in Glasgow, the Frenchman was in history with one of the most beautiful goals in a decisive game in the Champions League.
In an interview with the UEFA website, the Belgian winger said that if he had a chance to recall a goal, it would be that Zizou masterpiece. “The goal I would like to score is very easy for me. Zinedine Zidane, Champions League final against Leverkusen. Volley left, corner, goodbye.”
However, Hazard has a way to go with Madrid to reach the final game of the Champions League: they must turn the series against Manchester City after losing at home 2-1.
At the same time, Hazard clarified that scoring goals doesn’t drive him crazy, but prefers his team to win. “Some just think about scoring goals. I’m more of the type of player who can create things. That’s why I like to say that I’m more of an assistant than a goal-scoring machine,” he said.
“I prefer to give assists, but I also like the feeling of scoring a nice goal, a last minute goal, and winning the game in the end,” he concluded.
