Former Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has revealed that he would love to play under current Blues manager Frank Lampard.
“When I watch them, [there is] no Hazard but it is a party,” said Hazard as mentioned by The Express.
“They can score a lot of goals, the fans are happy, they are third in the league, it is going to be a great season. They just need to stay there and win games.
“We all know Willian, Jorginho they are very good. Also with the young players coming through, it is great to see the club high and I hope they can stay there.”
When asked if he would have liked to have played under Lampard, Hazard added: “Yeah, of course.”
After sensationally almost single handedly helping the Blues to finish in the top four last season as well as win the Europa League, Hazard ended up joining Real Madrid last summer. The move was seemingly to help him to win the Champions League which is the one major trophy missing from the Belgian’s personal trophy cabinet.
Due to the Blues two window transfer ban coinciding with Hazard’s departure, many felt that the Blues were destined to have a bad season this term.
The Blues have so far exceeded expectations
Both Lampard, as well as the team as a whole, have exceeded expectations. Many felt that the Stamford Bridge legend would have struggled to navigate the club well through the current situation given his lack of managerial experience. Previously relatively unknown players such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori have all come to the party this season. As things stand, the West London giants are well on course to go on and attain a top four finish this season. They will be unlikely to challenge for the League title- they were never expected to do so anyway, but it can safely be said that Lampard’s side are capable of giving the most elite sides in the world a run for their money.
Hazard has so far had a less than ideal start to life at Madrid
Hazard’s start to life at the Santiago Bernabeu has not so far been what he would have anticipated. He has so far just just one goal for Los Blancos in the La Liga. Many Madrid die-hard supporters would have been feeling that the former Chelsea star would have helped to fill the void in their attack that was created by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus during the summer of 2018. So far, he has been underwhelming.
