Mourinho has described Hazard as 'probably the best young player in the world' after a series of sparkling performances in the Premier League this season.
"I'm very happy because it's very pleasing when it comes from him," said Hazard.
"But I hope eventually people will drop the word 'young' because that will mean I have moved up.
"To get to the level of Ronaldo or Messi I have to work extremely hard because those players are on another planet."
