Kaka has retired from the field since 2017. For the past three years, Kaka has spent time with his family and has no intention of returning football as a coach.

Lionel Messi is the owner of the 2010 Golden Ball title. This is a controversial achievement, because many fans think Andreas Iniesta or Sneijder deserves more. Over the past 10 years, Messi has maintained its form to create a two-way race with Ronaldo. So far, Messi has won 6 Golden Balls, reaping a series of titles at Barca.

Hazard likes Ronaldo and Bale’s goals in the Champions League

Eden Hazard judges that Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have scored the best goals ever in the Champions League.

On the occasion of the return of the Champions League, Eden Hazard gave an interview to uefa.com and shared his memories of the tournament, especially the goals.

File photo dated 01-09-2007 of Liverpool’s Fernando Torres.

Revealing his favorite goal in the Champions League, Hazard said: “This question is easy because I did not score many goals in the tournament. But I think my first goal was the most special. It happened during Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Schalke in 2013.

“I was able to pass to Fernando Torres and I should have done so, but I ended up scoring. I was lucky when the ball went into the net. I also apologize to Torres because he waited for a hat-trick. ”

Hazard also affirmed that he preferred to create for the team to score rather than score. “When you see the ball against an opponent, the feeling is the same. In my mind it’s not just about scoring goals, scoring goals and scoring goals.

“Some players now think only of scoring their own goals. But I am different, the players can create more than just scoring. That’s why I want to be the king of assists rather than a scoring machine. But I also like the feeling of scoring a beautiful goal, a goal at the last minute to bring home the victory. ”

If selected, Hazard would love to score a volley in the final like his teacher Zinedine Zidane: “I like to score a goal like Zidane did against Leverkusen in 2002. A corner kick, one shot volley and net results were decided “.

However, Hazard chose the goals of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are the best goals ever in the Champions League.
