Latest report according to the Metro claims that Chelsea’s midfield maestro Eden Hazard has told his agent to look for a more viable club for him, after he reportedly fell out with his boss Jose Mourinho.
Hazard, unarguable the best player in the Blues’ team was benched in an EPL clash against Aston Villa and he missed a penalty kick against Stoke City during the midweek which sent his team packing from the Capital One Cup challenge.
It is reported that the Belgian star is no longer fine with Mourinho style of play given that he would have to attack as well as defend for the Blues, which has drastically reduce the 24-year old game.
Speaking at Sky Studios for Sky Academy Confidence Month, Arsenal legend Thierry Henry added to the speculation that Hazard is actually fed up with Mourinho tactics when he said:
“I see a team that is not buying into what Mourinho wants any more.
“Hazard and Nemanja Matic for example. Matic was substituted against Southampton then went to play for Serbia and got sent-off. He then got sent-off again at West Ham. Whether that was right or wrong, you can tell they are all on edge.
“The body language of Hazard suggests that he doesn’t want to play in the same way. Maybe Mourinho has to deal with his main players not accepting the way he likes to play
“It’s very demanding for Hazard to track back, tuck in and play on the counter. Mourinho has shown he’s been very successful winning games that way but when you win the league and come back the year after you need to do more.
“Can they do more? I don’t know at the moment. The players’ body language suggests they are fed up with some stuff – although I’m not in the dressing room to find out exactly what it is.”
Should this rumour hold any water, Hazard could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge in January with Real Madrid President Florentino Perez ready to break the bank to sign the EPL PFA award winner. Perez sees Hazard as a potential replacement for ageing Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo
