Chelsea ace Hazard focused on reaching level of Messi, Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic

Chelsea young gun Eden Hazard says he still has to work hard if he wants to get anywhere near the level set by three of the world's best players.

The Belgian winger is quickly becoming a superstar of the game but is well aware that he must remain focused and disciplined if he wants to join Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Paris Saint-Germain's Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the top tier.

"I am much younger," the 23-year old told L'Equipe.

"They won titles, I didn't. However, I have nothing to be jealous of them at the same age. I want to become like them one day, which means winning titles.

"It is up to me. I am on the right path, but I still have a lot to do during big matches. I have to score all the time, just like Zlatan, Ronaldo or Messi. I still have to work to reach their level."
