Eden Hazard has revealed that he wants to work under Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho again.
Hazard played for the Portuguese for two years at Chelsea, between 2013 and 2015, before Mourinho was sacked.
Nevertheless, he won the Premier League title and the League Cup in his second spell at Stamford Bridge, with Hazard a key member of the title-winning side, scoring 14 league goals and providing 10 assists.
A poor second season led to Mourinho’s sacking, however, with his Belgian star struggling for form – he scored just four goals in the league.
Mourinho is again under the microscope, this time at Manchester United, with the club already seven points behind the Blues and Manchester City.
Hazard, though, maintains that he regrets how their professional ties ended, and would like to play for him again.
“The last season under Mourinho was not pleasant anymore. We didn’t win, we got into a sort of routine, training-training without having fun, it was better for all parties that the collaboration came to an end,” he told Belgian newspaper HLN.
“If I’m now asked one coach with whom I want to work again, then I say: Mourinho.”
