Chelsea’s Eden Hazard wants to work with Jose Mourinho again

In an interview with Belgian outlet HLN, Eden Hazard has revealed he would like to work with Jose Mourinho again.

 ‘If I’m asked now about one coach with whom I want to work again, I would say Mourinho’

The pair did not end their relationship at Chelsea on good terms, however, Hazard has now admitted that was partly his fault and has since apologised to Mourinho.

Speaking about Mourinho and his time as Chelsea boss, Hazard stated:

“In 12 years I’ve only had one bad season, the last six months under Mourinho, and it was partly my own fault.

 “After the title, we asked Mourinho for extra holidays. I came back totally out of shape.”

“The last season under Mourinho was not enjoyable. We didn’t win, we got into a sort of routine, training without having fun, it was better for all parties that we parted ways.

“But if I’m asked now about one coach with whom I want to work again, I would say Mourinho.

“I don’t regret many things in my career, but that I have not been able to work with Mourinho at Chelsea anymore is one of them. We had a team that could win more trophies. We just ended up in a negative cycle.

“I sent him a message to say I was sorry he had gone and that I was sorry. We’d enjoyed all that success together, but this time we hadn’t. I felt a little bit guilty because I’d been player of the year. I’d been one of the most decisive players, and then I performed less.”

Hazard’s excellent 2018/19 season

While Hazard was nowhere near his best during the end of Mourinho’s time at Stamford Bridge, the Belgian is certainly thriving under new Blues boss, Maurizio Sarri.

In eight Premier League games this season, Eden Hazard has scored seven and assisted three.

This makes Hazard the top scorer in the league by two goals, ahead of Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane who are on five goals.

The Belgian was also instrumental in Chelsea beating Liverpool in the League Cup third round.

Chelsea were 1-0 down but Hazard would come on for the last 34 minutes to score and assist Emerson as Chelsea won 2-1.

Hazard has also earned himself the Premier League Player of the Month award for September.

Chelsea are also unbeaten in the Premier League this season and sit joint top of the table with Manchester City and Liverpool.

Their next game is a huge clash with Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United next Saturday.
