I didn’t say Hazard had a better season than Ronaldo: Mourinho

Eden Hazard has been offered little consolation that he can rapidly win his way once again into Chelsea chief Jose Mourinho’s affections.

Mourinho let Hazard well enough alone for his beginning line-up for the triumph over Aston Villa and cautioned the Belgian that he must work harder to win his place back.

Risk could be gave a speedy return in Chelsea’s Champions League conflict against Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine on Tuesday night after Pedro Rodriguez was left in London with a slight damage.

However, Mourinho left behind the chance to offer Hazard any sureties in front of the Dynamo amusement and may need a clarification over allegations that last season’s Player of the Year had fuelled hypothesis connecting him to Real Madrid.

Danger seemed to “like” a post on Instagram that said: “By media Eden Hazard is on Real Madrid’s radar for a 2016 exchange.”

It is vague regardless of whether the post had been altered and Chelsea could look for elucidation from Hazard, having effectively experienced issues with online networking this season, when previous club specialist Eva Carneiro said thanks to her fans for their messages of backing after she was condemned by Mourinho after the diversion against Swansea City.

When it was put to Mourinho that he guaranteed Hazard was superior to anything Cristiano Ronaldo last season, the Portuguese said: “I didn’t say he had a better season than Ronaldo. I said that, last season, he won one of the most important titles in football, the Premier league. And he was absolutely decisive for Chelsea. Last season he had a phenomenal season.”

Asked if Hazard has trained hard to try to get back into the starting line-up, Mourinho added: “How did he train (since the Villa game)? He trained like Eden.”
