ANTONIO CONTE has told Eden Hazard he needs Champions League glory on his CV.
It is the biggest club trophy and one which eludes Chelsea’s Belgian midfielder, stopping him from joining an elite group of players that includes Barcelona skipper Andres Iniesta.
Blues boss Conte said: “Iniesta won a lot in his career. Hazard has to start to win important trophies in his career.”
Conte, 48, won the Champions League as a player in 1996 with Juventus but has only reached the last eight as a manager.
He will match that if Chelsea can upset the odds and beat Barcelona tonight in the Nou Camp — but it means little to the determined Italian.
He said: “I consider it an achievement when you win something. I think this is a big achievement for a manager, for a coach.
“In this case, we are talking about the last 16.
“For sure, we have to make a great game if we want to have a chance to go into the next round.
“We are playing against Barcelona, and I consider Barcelona one of the best teams in the world.
“They’re winning the league, they are in a final of the Spanish Cup.
“They have all the characteristics to have a great season.
“But, as you know you are never sure with football.
“For this reason, I repeat, like the first leg we want to try and play our football, to create chances, score and create problems for Barcelona.
“A lot of my players have not played in the Nou Camp. This is the first time. We want to try and do our best.”
Brazilian midfielder Willian scored in the first leg only for Lionel Messi to equalise and earn Barca a precious away goal.
Willian 29, said: “I’m happy with the goals that I’ve scored, but I want more. For the team, as well.
“We come here respecting Barcelona. They are great and have great players and are a big club — like Chelsea are a big club.
“We want to do our job, the perfect job, to go through to the next round. That’s what we want.”
