Eden Hazard admits Arsenal legend has been giving him advice
Eden Hazard explains why he loves having Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as one of his coaches with Belgium
Eden Hazard has admitted that he is thrilled to have Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as one of his coaches with the Belgian national team.
Henry is one of Roberto Martinez’s assistants with the Belgian set-up and the pair have been working closely together in recent months with the national team.
Hazard and his Belgian team-mates will be hoping to have a very successful World Cup in Russia this summer and the Chelsea FC playmaker has revealed that he loves to have the Arsenal legend on his coaching staff.
Speaking in an interview with Copa90, Hazard said: “It’s good to have him on the team, he’s got loads of experience.
“(He gives advice) but not just with football, in life. That’s why he’s a good guy, we are not just talking about football. Because also he speaks French, I speak French so it’s easier to talk together.
“Not just for me but for all of the players in Belgium. I think we have a chance to have him so we need to use it.”
Hazard was unable to prevent Chelsea FC from slipping to a disappointing 2-1 loss to Manchester United in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
The Belgian attacker helped to fire Chelsea FC to the Premier League title last season and he was voted as the PFA player of the year back in 2015.
Henry’s old team, meanwhile, are preparing to host Manchester City at The Emirates on Thursday night as they bid to get their top-four quest back on track.
Arsenal are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table and 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, although they do have a game in hand over their bitter local rivals.
