Eden Hazard has urged his Chelsea teammates to help the team qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League at any cost at the end of this campaign.
Talking to the club’s official website, the Belgian Said:
“We have to qualify – that’s it, that simple.
“We want to play in the Champions League next season so the only solution is to be in the top four or win the Europa League.
“It’s not just about me, the club has to be in the Champions League. We miss the Champions League this season, so for the fans, for the board, for the players, the staff, this club has to be in the Champions League every year.
“But in the Premier League you never know how many teams can be in the top-four race, six or seven, so it is a hard challenge, but we can do it.
“Every year is different, every year is hard, but I think the Premier League is getting harder every year. But at the end the target is always the same, to win something and then play Champions League next season.
“We are Chelsea. Every year we need to start thinking at the beginning of the season that we can have trophies. In the last 10 years we’ve won a lot of trophies, so we need to think we can keep doing it.
“It’s just about mentality, if we want to win something we can do it.”
