Eden Hazard has taken swipe at former Chelsea managers Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte following his side’s 2-0 win over AFC Bournemouth.
Hazard is currently flourishing at Stamford Bride under new Blues manager Maurizio Sarri as his side now boast four wins out of four at the start of the season.
The Belgium international, who was expected to leave Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid this summer, scored two goals in four games so far.
However, the playmaker, who is enjoying his football under Sarri, has insisted the former Napoli boss’ play style is getting the best out of him.
“I like to have the ball. Not in my own half, but in the last 30 metres,” Hazard told Chelsea TV.
“I like this type of game, it’s completely different from Antonio Conte or [Jose] Mourinho before. Like I say, we have more of the ball so for me, it’s not bad.”
Claudio Ranieri, who also managed Chelsea between 2000 and 2004 has revealed his point of view while discussing a visit to Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.
“When I am free I like to go and watch some managers at work.”
“The atmosphere was fantastic, it was fantastic because Maurizio likes to enjoy but is strong, and it’s a good atmosphere.”
“All the players are happy, it was a good training session. It’s a good atmosphere.”
