Eden Hazard is having his best season in his career and has hailed Maurizio Sarri for the kind of football being played at Stamford Bridge.
“Statistically it’s my best season, and I like to say that because the way he’s [Sarri] thinking is the same way I think about football,” Hazard told BBC Football Focus, despite a debut season in the England’s top flight that has seen Sarri garner mixed reviews. “Sometimes we have lost but, at the end, the way he wants to play is the way I want Chelsea to play.”
“I think he is a fantastic manager. After Conte it was not easy,” Hazard said. “He came here with his own ideas to play football and I think we have done quite well. It’s not simple to play the football he wants to play but I think now we have started to understand.”
“We are working a lot because this manager is different to Conte, he’s different to Mourinho. It’s not easy to change everything but I think we have showed in the past two or three weeks that we have adapted well, and now we want to finish the season well.”
