Eden Hazard is determined to work hard and prove his worth at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho.

The Belgian playmaker has been one of the Blues’ standout performers this season, scoring 13 goals and making seven assists in 30 Premier League appearances.

Mourinho recently went on record and declared that Hazard has the potential to develop into the best player in the world in years to come.

Mourinho gives a lot of confidence to his players, he motivates us with small statements

And the 23-year-old is desperate to live up to the Portuguese coach’s expectations in the seasons to come.

“When a person [like Mourinho] says good things about you, wants the best out of you, it’s always a good thing,” Hazard told Uefa.com.

“It shows that you’re on the right track and that you still have a lot to accomplish, because talent is good but you can do better.

“It is up to me now to work hard in order to reach the best possible level, and that can be through training and games.

“It’s not that he makes me improve or anything. He lets people do their own thing, he gives a lot of confidence to his players, he motivates us with small statements, small sentences in the newspapers or face to face.

“I think I am giving that back to him on the pitch. As I often say, I hope it will last because we have a nice chapter to write together.”
