Hazard Won’t Imitate Terry As Belgium Captain

share on:

Eden Hazard has stated he will not try to be like Chelsea captain John Terry as captain of Belgium.

The Belgium midfielder was made captain of the Red Devils, ahead of the Euro 2016 due to the absence of Vincent Kompany and he’ll continue to wear the armband.

Kompany has been back in contention, but has been a regular fixture in the treatment room.

Coach Roberto Martinez confirmed on Wednesday that Hazard will continue as captain even when Kompany is present in the squad, though the 25-year-old will not be looking to develop similar characteristics to his skipper at club level.

“It’s good for me to be the captain,” he told reporters ahead of Sunday’s World Cup qualifier against Estonia. “I enjoy it.

“But I can’t be like John Terry. As captain, I don’t talk too much. I try to talk with my feet on the pitch.

“My ambition is to lead Belgium to the World Cup, to win something for the country. I hope we can do it but it’s still far away.”
