During the last summer transfer window, Belgian star Eden Hazard seemed close to a move to the Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Then the Blues striker spoke with the new Chelsea’s manager Maurizio Sarri and now Hazard himself reveals how the Italian convinced him to stay at Stamford Bridge: “He just told me that he wanted me to be one of the best players in the world. That’s it. And he tried to give me this confidence… and he asked me to score goals”. Hazard told The Premier League Show. “When I speak with him he always says, “You can score three goals every game”. But you know sometimes he is hard, but I try to do my best.”
The Belgian then also praised Maurizio Sarri: “We knew that Sarri was a fantastic manager. He showed to England now that he’s maybe one of the best in the world”. he added. “So at the moment like I say we are playing good, we are scoring goals, creating chances. So it’s good to be here.”
