Eden Hazard has hailed Jose Mourinho for his coaching style, saying that the Chelsea boss knows exactly how to get the best out of him.

The 23-year-old won the PFA young player of the year award last season after working under Mourinho for the first time at Stamford Bridge.

And the Belgium international says that Mourinho’s hands-off approach has helped him improve as a player over the last year.

“I like the way he gets you going as a player,” Hazard told The Express.

“There is a lot of respect. This is the best coach in the world. He gives me a lot of confidence. Even after a bad game, he puts me right again.

“He might have a little dig, saying, ‘Today we played with 10 men’. But it stops there. Then he will leave me alone, he will not break my head.

“It’s the first time I have known a coach who operates like this. The others tended to protect me. Him, he really wants my potential to explode – and he does everything to make it happen.”
