Eden Hazard crowned 'Best Belgian in a Foreign League in 2017'

Eden Hazard crowned

Brussels, 8 February 2018 (MIA) - Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has been voted as Belgium's 'Best Player Abroad' for 2017, following a year which has seen him win the Premier League, and still relentlessly linked with a move to Real Madrid for what feels like the 14th season in a row.

Despite admitting earlier in the season that Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne (who is also Belgian) is the best player in the Premier League, it seems as though the rest of his home nation disagree - although he never actually came out on top in either of the voting rounds, Sports Illustrated reported.

According to Kristoff Terreur, Napoli forward Dries Mertens win the first round of voting back in June, fresh off the back of a stellar season in Napoli - during which he was part of the most prolific attacking force in Italy.

The second round went to the previously mentioned De Bruyne in December; which really is no surprise. The Man City playmaker spent the first half of the season on fire - earning plaudits from every pundit who received enough airtime to flatter the former Chelsea midfielder.

However, it appears that Hazard has come out as the overall victor; a player who has spent the year consistently pulling out top level performances under Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge. sk/10:06
