Hazard: Atleti are hungry

Eden Hazard anticipates a tough test from Atletico Madrid in Friday’s UEFA Super Cup, as the Chelsea man eyes the world stage.

The summer signing has starred for the Londoners in the early season and is set to be one of the dangermen for Atleti this Friday, but he has full respect for their own strength.

“Atletico Madrid are hungry for success and are a great team with great players,” commented the Belgian today, before reflecting on how he hopes the game will go.

“I’m not here to be a star, but a good performance against Atletico would be a good start.

“In the south of France they don’t know you if you play for Lille, but now I am known in the US thanks to Chelsea.

“I hope to be recognised worldwide on Friday against Atletico Madrid.”
