Misfiring star Eden Hazard's answer to a question about Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has cast his future at Chelsea in doubt.
The Los Blancos manager has often had words of praise for the Belgian, and when Hazard was asked if he would like to play under the Frenchman one day, he did not hold back.
"Yes, of course," he said, according to Marca.
"It's flattering to hear someone I've always admired speak about me in such terms.
"I know all about him as a player, but I'm not that familiar with what he's like as a coach.
"I do know that he's had a really good start at Real Madrid. However, I'm still under contract at Chelsea.
"When I was a kid I used to watch him on TV and online videos of him for hours. I ate, slept and breathed Zidane.
"However, I want to reiterate that I feel very good at Chelsea."
Hazard's performances have been heavily criticised this season – he has scored just one goal in 31 matches in all competition for Chelsea.
Interim manager Guus Hiddink also recently admitted the Belgian could leave at the end of the season.
