Mourinho Calls Hazard 'Awful' Trainer

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has described Eden Hazard, whom he worked with in England, as an "awful" trainer, and suggested that the player has not lived up to his potential.

Mourinho Reveals His Emotional Reaction To Eriksen Collapse

The Belgian winger has endured a difficult time in Spain since his club-record move to Real Madrid in 2019, having scored only five goals in 43 games across all competitions since.

While his talent is widely celebrated, Hazard has gained a reputation for being a free-spirited, happy-go-lucky footballer, with a number of his former teammates having said he does not train well.

In a recent interview, those sentiments were echoed by his ex-manager Mourinho, who suggested that the 30-year-old could have had a much better career if he worked harder.

"An amazing player with awful training," he told talkSPORT.

"He gets on the pitch every morning and he doesn't work much. You can imagine what he could be if he was a top professional."

Hazard made 125 appearances under Mourinho at Chelsea, scoring 36 goals and assisting a further 30 strikes in that period.
