Former Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has been named the Europa League Player of the Season in 2018/19.

This was announced officially by UEFA during today’s group stage draw ceremony.

The Belgian was an engine that saw the Blues advance to the Europa League finals last season.

In the decisive match against Arsenal Hazard has scored a brace, winning a Man of the Match award, along with the EL trophy – second in his Chelsea career.

Even though Eden moved on since – as Real Madrid have come calling and it was his childhood dream – no Chelsea fan will forget the contributions made by Hazard last season, as well as many seasons before.

Congratulations, Eden!
