Hazard headlines Champions Matchday

Eden Hazard tops the list of stars who feature in this month's official competition magazine, which also includes Sir Alex Ferguson, Diego Costa and Philipp Lahm.

And then there were eight. The latest edition of Champions Matchday is all about the quarter-finals.

In the new issue of the official UEFA Champions League magazine, cover star Eden Hazard talks exclusively of the importance of joy in football, what it means to be a role model and how Chelsea FC manager José Mourinho has helped him develop his game.

We also sit down for an exclusive, wide-ranging interview with newly appointed UEFA Coaching Ambassador, Sir Alex Ferguson. The former Manchester United FC boss discusses fulfilling his dreams in the UEFA Champions League, creating a team that reflected his character and the European sides that inspired him to achieve greatness.

Elsewhere, FC Barcelona forward Pedro Rodríguez reveals how he stays calm under pressure at Camp Nou, Club Atlético de Madrid's in-form striker Diego Costa looks back on his route to the top, and Kevin Grosskreutz shares the thrill of going from fan to favourite at Borussia Dortmund.

There are also one-on ones with two of the UEFA Champions League's top goalkeepers: Paris Saint-Germain's Salvatore Sirigu speaks of his hero Gianluigi Buffon, the influence of Laurent Blanc and the club's European ambitions; and Manchester United FC's David de Gea elaborates on mental strength, the English game and his hopes for this campaign.

Also in the latest edition, we celebrate the glorious career of Eusébio, trace the evolution of the counterattacking game and recount the moments that shaped the life of FC Bayern München captain Philipp Lahm.

Champions Matchday is the official magazine of the UEFA Champions League and is available in 79 territories across the world. It is also available in digital format on Apple Newsstand. You can follow the magazine on Twitter @ChampionsMag.
