Eden Hazard has done it again! He was elected as Best Player of the Year in France for season 2011-2012, by Newspaper L’équipe.

Hazard, who is leaving the French competition, is leaving in great style.

Eden has demonstrated his enormous talents during all the games, and has put some impressive statistics together.

Hazard received in total 293 points of 35 journalists, and received more points than Olivier Giroud (Montpellier/188 points) en Nene (PSG/87 points). It is the first time L’équipe presents its Best Player Award. Hazard was 24 times voted first, 10 times second, and once third. He is the only player that got points from everyone.

L’équipe repeated that in 36 games with Lille, he marked an impressive 17 goals and 15 assists (17 goals and 22 assists when counting like transfermarkt.com where a penalty caused counts as an assist. This counting reflects the real influence of the game more accurately) . With these statistics, Eden is the only player together with Messi who has 15 goals and at least 15 assists.

Hazard is also one of the 4 nominees for Best Player of Ligue 1 award of UNFP, the national union of French football players. There he nominated by his colleagues together with Néné (PSG), Giroud and Belhanda (Montpellier)(See article 29th of April).
Monday the winner will be known! Eden Hazard already won the trophy once, was once runner-up, and won already twice the Young Player award as well.

He adds yet another award to his very young career (21y):
