Chelsea boss Conte: Hazard must discover his sacred fire

Chelsea boss Conte: Hazard must discover his sacred fire”

Antonio Conte admitted that a "great worker" like Chelsea's N'Golo Kante will never win the Ballon d'Or, despite claiming that he would be worthy of such recognition in the eyes of every coach in the world.

Conte believes Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar have an inner desire to keep winning, a sacred fire and he reckons Hazard is the only Chelsea player who can challenge them for the right to be the world's best by nurturing this flame. While his teammate Eden Hazard finished on 19th.

As per Sky Sports, the Italian manager expressed the pleasure of being able to manage a player like Kante.

However, the Belgian worldwide was ranked in 19 place in this year's Ballon d'Or list, eleven places behind PFA player of the year and teammate N'Golo Kante.

Honestly, I don't know if Kante can win it because of his characteristics.

N'Golo Kante, Hazard's team-mate, was the highest ranked Premier League player in eighth place and while Conte concedes the defensive midfielder is unlikely to ever win the award, he insists the France worldwide would have been his choice.

It pains me to say it but the fact the award is becoming more of a popularity contest makes it hard for one of our players to win it.

So often the Ballon d'Or has been awarded to attacking players and Conte, who has lauded the ability of Kante, believes this will unfortunately stop the 26-year-old from picking up the top award during his career.

"For that reason they are very special". A player like Hazard does. Last season we won the league. The past is not important the past for these players.

"At this level you must have this type of situation".

"He doesn't score a lot of goals".

This week, Hazard was voted the 19th best player in the world for 2017, which in all fairness is a way below the level he aspires to and the level everyone knows he can reach.

"This is important. But at the same time I am his coach and I try to push him".

Conte added: "Eden has right characteristic to try to fight with these giants". But for sure Eden is a young player and he has the potential to improve his place in this table. When you have an inferno it means you are like Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar. While he did miss the start of the 2017/18 season after a surgery over the summer, the forward has shown signs of getting back to his best and a few have called him the best number 10 in the Premier League. "He has the potential to do this but it is not simple to overcome this chance".

"I think in this league evey game is very tough but to play during a seson eight to ten derbies is more hard". "If you are a team and you stay in London, you must be prepared to play a lot of special games", Conte said.
