Chelsea winger, Eden Hazard, has reportedly told close friends that Jose Mourinho is the 'worst coach' he’s ever worked with.
According to French sport website RMC, Hazard has said Mourinho is “the worst manager he has known.”
These statements only come a few days after Hazard publically critized Mourinho’s defensive tactics, saying ‘Chelsea aren’t set up to play football.’
If the RMC quotes is true – the website is often used as a mouthpiece by many French (speaking) players – it seems as Hazard is trying to force his way out of Chelsea with Paris Saint-Germain chasing the Belgium winger.
Hazard’s first quotes this week had caused a huge uproar at Stamford Bridge and were apparently taken out of context but the new quotes will surely again cause a lot of tension.
Mourinho has publically praised the PFA Young Player of the Year throughout the whole season and Hazard has been Chelsea’s stand-out performer, scoring 14 goals and assisting further nine.
However, the 23-year-old has been criticized for being at fault for two of Atletico Madrid’s goal in the Champions League semi-final return leg, which saw Chelsea being eliminated from the competition.
Hazard had just returned from injury after being side-lined for four games and definitely couldn’t live up the offensive expectations upon his return.
