French source RMC, reveals that Eden Hazard to his friends confided that the worst coach with whom he worked so far is his current manager, the Portugese, Jose Mourinho.
After Chelsea exited the Champions League on Wednesday, the best young player in the English Premier league, Eden Hazard was quite critical of the style of game that forced Mourinho, saying that it is not easy to carry out defensive assignments and that Chelsea game was made just for the counter attack.
‘Chelsea aren’t set up to play football,’ Belgian Hazard told beIN SPORTS’ French station. ‘Chelsea are set up to counter-attack.’
Belgian allegedly went a step further, since he told to his friends that Mourinho is the worst manager with whom he ever worked.
Sources close to Hazard have told RMC that, despite he maintains a good relationship with Mourinho, Hazard can not handle defensive style of play that his coach is forcing.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho today has hit back at Eden Hazard by claiming he doesn’t sacrifice himself for the team.
“Eden is the kind of player that is not so mentally ready to look back to his left-back and live his life for him.
“If you see the first goal of Atletico you completely understand where the mistake was and why we conceded that goal. The perfect team at the top level can’t make these mistakes.
“He’s not the kind of player ready to sacrifice himself 100 per cent for the team. No, I’m not happy [with his defensive performance]. I speak to him all season and I’ve been trying to improve him all season.”
Regarding Hazard’s itnerview, Mourinho claims that the context was completely transformed : “The context is completely transformed. The media was reporting that he was being critical but there’s nothing critical in what he says.”
Chelsea defender/midfield David Luiz said that this season is a failure without any trophies.
“We are a big club and we want to win trophies. We keep fighting in the league. We cannot win automatically. It will be difficult.”
“You can say it is a s*** season if you don’t have trophies in a season at a big club. That is true,” Luiz told reporters.
