Mou: Hazard More Than A Talented Kid

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on his match-winner Eden Hazard after the Belgium international opened the scoring in the Blues 2-0 win over Hull City at the KC Stadium.

The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ believes that Hazard has now matured from a ‘talented kid’ into an integral part of Chelsea’s team.

Hazard who has now scored 11 times this season was signed for £32 million ($52.7 million, 38.6 million euros) in 2012 from Lille and Mourinho believes the Premier League is now seeing the best from the 23 year old.

"He has been playing very well for a long time," Mourinho said.

"The club made a big investment in him last year (season). To bring a player from France and pay the amount Chelsea did is because Chelsea trust the player a lot.”

"He is not anymore a talented kid; he is now more than that. He is a player who feels and accepts the responsibility, feels and accepts that a team player is more than a talented player, and without losing his fantastic ability and fantastic talent,” he added.

"The kid is in a very good moment of his career. Three consecutive times he is man of the match, which is something nice. Let's see if the Barclays Premier League decides to give him player of the month.”

"The kid is waiting, but the trophy is not arriving."
