Hazard dreams of play­ing un­der Zi­dane

Observer on Saturday - - Sport - Reuters

- Chelsea play­maker Eden Hazard says it “would be a dream” to play un­der French great and cur­rent Real Madrid Man­ager Zine­dine Zi­dane in the fu­ture.

Hazard has been in­stru­men­tal to Chelsea’s suc­cess since join­ing the club in 2012, win­ning two Pre­mier League ti­tles, a League Cup and the Europa League, and has scored three goals and pro­vided four as­sists in 13 ap­pear­ances this sea­son. Me­dia re­ports have re­peat­edly linked the Bel­gian with the Span­ish cham­pi­ons and the 26-year-old did not rule out a fu­ture move to Real Madrid.

“Ev­ery­one knows the re­spect I have for Zi­dane as a player, but also as a man­ager. He was my idol,” Hazard told Bel­gian TV chan­nel RTL.

“I do not know what will hap­pen in the fu­ture. How­ever, for sure, to play un­der Zi­dane would be a dream.

“I am en­joy­ing life at Chelsea. I still have a lot of things to achieve with them. I am fo­cused on play­ing for Chelsea.”

Hazard said that he would also en­joy a reunion with for­mer Chelsea man­ager Jose Mour­inho, who is cur­rently at league ri­vals Manch­ester United.
