Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has spoken about his admiration for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane after the Frenchman recently admitted his ‘love’ for the Blues’ star.
The 25-year-old has been plagued by poor form and irregular injury problems this season as Chelsea languish in the bottom half of the Premier League table after 25 league games.
Hazard in an interview on a Belgian website Sudinfo.be this week said:
“It’s always nice to hear that a player that I admired during my childhood talks about me.
“I always liked Zidane. Now I know the player by heart but don’t know the coach at all, even if he’s started very well at the Bernabeu. I’m also still under contract at Chelsea and I feel very good there.” Hazard stated.
And when quizzed on if he would like Zidane to coach him one day, Hazard added:
“Yes of course. When I was little, I watched him on television and the internet for hours.
“I talked Zidane and I ate Zidane. But, and I repeat it, I feel very good at Chelsea so it’s not news.” Hzard added.
Despite his poor season, Real Madrid boss Zidane says Hazard ‘gives him the most’ when he watches Belgium play amid continued rumours that the La Liga giants are interested in signing the Chelsea man.
