Many at Chelsea have not been happy with how the season has gone so far: although the club is still competing for the FA Cup, they face an uphill challenge of trying to secure the fourth spot in the Premier League and the opportunity to play Champions League football.
Antonio Conte appears set to leave the Blues at the end of the campaign, as he has cut a frustrated figure on the touchlines, but star midfielder Eden Hazard has committed his future to the Stamford Bridge outfit.
The Belgium playmaker has looked unhappy in some of the positions the Italian manager has opted to play him, such as in a ‘false nine’ role when against Manchester City, which had left him isolated and fairly useless.
However, the winger has insisted that he is happy to play whatever role Conte gives him, and even made a quip that he’d be satisfied with playing at left-back, so long as he is contributing to the team’s efforts.
“I just want to be on the pitch,” the 27-year-old told Sky Sports. “Number 9, 10; I can play left-back if the manager wants, no problem. I just want to be on the pitch and try to give everything like I do every time.”
Hazard ‘just happy’ at Stamford Bridge
When asked whether he was happy at Stamford Bridge, amidst transfer rumours that have linked him with a potential move to Real Madrid, he stated that he was looking forward to his future with the club.
“I’m happy with Chelsea,” he added. “I am just thinking about the end of the season and the World Cup. I have got two years left on my contract so I am just happy.”
Chelsea takes on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday at the Bridge as they look to close the gap between them and Spurs to two points. History will be in the favour of the Blues at the weekend, as the visitors have failed to pick up three points against the west Londoners for the past 28 years.
