Eden Hazard: José Mourinho gives me confidence.

Eden Hazard praised his manager José Mourinho for his coaching ability and says the Portuguese knows how to get the best out of him.

The Belgium international is one of Europe's best young player and won the PFA young player of the year award last term when Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge from Los Blancos.

However, the 23-year-old who is known for his creativity, speed, and technical ability, told The Express that Mourinho`s approach towards him gives him confidence and has made him become a better player.

“I like the way he gets you going as a player,” Hazard said.

“There is a lot of respect. This is the best coach in the world. He gives me a lot of confidence. Even after a bad game, he puts me right again.

“He might have a little dig, saying, ‘Today we played with 10 men’. But it stops there. Then he will leave me alone, he will not break my head.

“It’s the first time I have known a coach who operates like this. The others tended to protect me. Him, he really wants my potential to explode – and he does everything to make it happen.”
