Chelsea ace Eden Hazard rejects Man of the Match award in hilarious post-match interview after Huddersfield win

GIDDY Eden Hazard refused to accept his Man of the Match award after Chelsea’s 3-1 win in Huddersfield.

The Belgium superstar instead passed the gong to Willian – who scored and twice assisted – during their post-match interview.

Willian was asked by BT Sport reporter Des Kelly to present his team-mate with the award but was rebuffed by Hazard, who took it off him and handed it the other way.

He said: “No, it’s for you.”

Willian at first looks bewildered but the pair shake hands and laugh.

Hazard struggled to contain himself from the start of the interview and burst out laughing after jokingly praising his own performance.

Willian’s misjudgement of the title race set him off again.

When asked whether the Brazilian agreed with boss Antonio Conte that Chelsea are now out of the running to defend their title, he said: “It is difficult. We are 14 points . . .”

But Hazard interrupts: “11 . . .”

And after Kelly says: “You are back in it,” the Chelsea ace keels over in another fit of the giggles.

But Hazard was much more serious when admitting he DOES feel tired this season.

Conte has complained of a threadbare squad with a congested fixture list of Premier League and European football.

Hazard reinforced his manager’s point, saying: “Yes , of course. We have a lot of games in a short period but last year we didn’t.

“But since I came to Chelsea, for six years now, every year’s the same, so we can deal with that.

“We have a lot of players in the team so we are ready. Of course we want to rest more but it’s not possible.”
