Gianfranco Zola sends Chelsea FC message to Eden Hazard
Gianfranco Zola reveals his plan for Eden Hazard at Chelsea FC this season
Gianfranco Zola has revealed that he is working closely with Maurizio Sarri to try and get the best form out of Eden Hazard at Chelsea FC.
Hazard has been in fine form so far this season and he has scored five goals and made two assists in six Premier League games for the Blues to help them keep pace with Liverpool FC at the top of the table.
The 27-year-old was not at his mercurial best last season as the Blues ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table under Antonio Conte.
However, it seems as though the arrival of Sarri as Conte’s successor at Stamford Bridge has helped to inject some new life into Hazard this season.
And Chelsea FC assistant coach Zola has revealed that he and Sarri will work closely with Hazard in the coming weeks and months in order to try and coax the best possible form from the playmaker.
Speaking at a news conference before Chelsea FC’s trip to Liverpool FC in the League Cup, Zola said: “We are very happy with him.
“As you play, you get more experiences, at a high level for a long time, you get better and learn how to use your abilities in a more efficient way. That’s what I mean.
“It’s a process he will do himself. We will try and suggest how to be more effective on the pitch, and he will benefit from the way we try to play.
“We try to play a long time in the opposition half. The closer we keep him to the goal, the more chances we can get him receiving the ball around the box, the more effective he will be.”
Chelsea FC will now switch their attentions to preparing for their crunch home clash against Liverpool FC at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
The Blues know that a win would move them a point ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s in-form Liverpool FC side.
