Eden Hazard reveals Samuel Eto'o backing

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard says that teammate Samuel Eto'o has backed him to become one of the world's finest players in the future.

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has revealed that teammate Samuel Eto'o has backed him to become one of the world's finest players in the future.

The Belgium international has blossomed in his second season at Stamford Bridge, registering 15 goals in all competitions for the Blues - 14 of which have come in the Premier League.

"Eto'o tells me every day that I can be one of world's best players," he told La Derniere Heure. "Before every game he tells me I have to make the difference.

"He tells me, 'You don't leave the stadium without scoring a goal.' After a while you understand that.

"A few years ago, football was just football for me. If I didn't score, I didn't care too much, as long as we won the game. Now I want to score in every game and be decisive."

The West Londoners lead the way in the race to the Premier League title, with Jose Mourinho's men four points ahead of Liverpool.
