Chelsea winger Hazard reveals Eto'o mentoring

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard says senior teammate Samuel Eto'o is acting as a mentor for him this season.

The £32million star, in his second year here, said summer signing Eto'o has encouraged him to grow as a player.

"Yes - every day, he tells me I have to be among the best players in the world," Hazard told La Derniere Heure.

"Every match, he repeats that I have to make the difference. He tells me: 'You cannot leave the ground without having scored a goal'.

"By hearing it so much, it has got inside my head. Before, I said to myself I was just going to play football. If we were winning and I wasn't scoring, never mind.

"From now on, I think that football is also: Always score, always show things."
