Eden Hazard has admitted his disappointment with Chelsea FC’s “bad season” last term as they missed out on Champions League qualification.

The Blues slumped to a disappointing fifth placed finish in the Premier League table after having won the title in Antonio Conte’s first campaign in charge last term.

Chelsea FC failed to produce consistent performances in the top flight and ended up missing out on qualification for next season’s Champions League.

The west London side did manage to end the season on a positive note by beating Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May to lift the trophy.

However, Hazard has admitted that he was disappointed with the Blues’ campaign overall following their fifth placed finish and their Champions League exit to FC Barcelona.

Speaking at a news conference while on international duty with Belgium, Hazard said: “At the moment I only focus on the World Cup.

“We had a bad season with Chelsea. We won the FA Cup at the end – so it was a little bit better but I’m only focused on the World Cup.

“Then I let the board manage Chelsea the best way that they can.”

Chelsea FC will be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

The west London side will be aiming to break back into the top four at the very least next season, but it remains to be seen whether Conte will stay in charge.
