Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have dominated the Ballon d'or award in recent years, but Chelsea star Eden Hazard has explained what he needs to do in order to win the accolade.

Hazard has made the Ballon d'Or shortlist three times in the last four years, although he has never finished higher than eighth in the voting.

Hazard has only scored 12 goals and provided four assists this season, but he feels he needs to be more selfish if he wants to win the award.

"He [father] always told me that," Hazard told BBC

"Maybe it's true.

"I think, in football now, if you want to win something like the Ballon d'Or or [to be the] top-scorer, you need to be selfish. But I'm not like this, not at all. I'm just who I am."

The Belgium international has made 299 appearances for the Blues, scoring 88 goals and providing 75 assists.

I doubt he'll ever win it. His inconsistency will always cost him.

Not true at all! Nedved and Canavaro won it without any selfishness. Kaka was never selfish. And so are the current top 3 players. It is their outstanding class that helps them to decide big games, consistently. That is all you need. Do not worry about it, Mbappe is already breathing down Neymar's neck. So, it will never come to you. You are good though, not that high level.

You just have to leave Cowlsea and join the greatest team in the world, which is of course Real Madrid. How can you win Ballon d'Or playing alongside cows like Giroud, Azpilicuata, Cahil, Bakayoko etc?
