Chelsea boss Mourinho: Hazard success down to his attitude

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is delighted with the attitude of Eden Hazard this season.

Hazard ran into trouble with Mourinho when going AWOL earlier this term, but the manager has been happy with his attitude ever since.

"Eden was much easier than I thought. If it was easier than I thought it is his responsibility, not my responsibility," he explained.

"What I did was normal, the way he reacted was not normal. It was fantastic. His evolution is great. What I feel now with him is responsibility in every aspect. Against Man United I saw him make a fantastic tackle in our box. And then against Stoke I saw him with initiative not waiting for things to happen but making things happen.

"He doesn't feel the pressure and he isn't afraid to risk things. I want him to be a joker and it is good that he brings to his game this happiness. You cannot stop the top players having this extra thing in their game. That's not a problem for me."
