Jose Mourinho: ‘Magical’ Eden Hazard will be better next season
Jose Mourinho is expecting Eden Hazard to continue his development at Chelsea next season
Jose Mourinho is backing Eden Hazard to continue his development into one of the Premier League’s top players next season.
The Belgian playmaker was named the PFA young player of the year after scoring 14 goals and making seven assists for the Blues in the top flight.
And Mourinho is certain that there is more to come from the 23-year-old next season.
He had a big evolution and he scored more goals than before
“Obviously the fans enjoy and respect people like Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry – people that are so stable during the season and do an incredible job for the team – but people like Eden bring the magic and win matches in one action,” said Mourinho on Chelsea’s season-review DVD.
“They have the flair and the artist’s touch of the football.
“At the same time, he was not just that. He had a big evolution and he scored more goals than before.
“His work-rate for the team improved a lot too so, for a player like him, he deserved it and the fact he was recognised by the fans gives him for sure more appetite for the next season to be even better.”
