Hazard: I can’t be like Terry

Eden Hazard revealed he has a completely different leadership style to John Terry after the Chelsea winger was handed the captain's armband by Belgium.

Hazard was made skipper for the 1-1 draw against Netherlands in an international friendly on Wednesday and is widely expected to retain the role for the World Cup qualifier against Estonia on Sunday.

While the skilful midfielder is relishing the chance to lead his country, he says he has no such ambitions with Chelsea while Terry remains at the club.

"It's good to be the captain, I enjoy this," Hazard said. "I try to be a leader on the pitch, maybe it's new for me now, maybe one year I'm the captain.

"I want to lead Belgium to the World Cup. I want to win something with the country, I hope we will, but it's too far now.

"I don't know [about captaining Chelsea], we will see. John Terry is still there. I don't want to touch John Terry.

"I can't be like John Terry, I can't be like him. As a captain I don't talk too much, I try to talk with my feet on the pitch. This is my job."
