Chelsea dazzler Eden Hazard insists he's a team player.

Hazard’s sublime skills made him a target for some of Europe’s top clubs this summer. But although he is known for the flashy side of his game, Hazard insists he is a team player.

He told the new official Champions Matchday magazine: “I love to set up my team-mates. I am not here to be a star, to show off. I am here to play for the others, but if I have to try and clinch a game then I will.

“At Lille, coach [Rudi] Garcia made me play on the wing, which I liked because it means you are more free. You do what you want offensively even if you have to defend a lot. People will see me at Chelsea the way I am and judge me the way they want to.”
