Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has flatly denied all the rumors regarding his alleged conflict with Jose Mourinho. Moreover he revealed that he himself asked the Portuguese coach to play him in a number 10 role.

The Belgium international got annoyed with the rumours about his conflict with Chelsea manager which intensified after Saturday’s game against Norwich when the Belgian played on other than the usual position. The 24-year-old player explained that the decision to play centrally in Chelsea’s midfield was the result of talks with Jose Mourinho and certainly was not any kind of punishment.

Hazard said:

“I don’t have a problem with Mourinho. I’ve heard a lot of things about this, but no. Everything is good with him. He is the best manager.”

“He is the best manager for Chelsea, and we hope we can win a lot of trophies together.”

”Maybe not this season because it will be difficult, but next season and on.”

“I didn’t start the season well. I know that. You just have to keep going, waiting for performances.”

”We spoke together before the Stoke game. I said to him: ‘Maybe we have to try something, to change something. Maybe I have to play a No.10 because we have to try.’’

“We did and I played a very good game in the [League] Cup in Stoke. And, [against Norwich], it was the same.”

“I don’t know if I have to play every game as a No.10. I just want to play.”
