Hazard lauds Chelsea boss Conte

Eden Hazard has heaped praise on Chelsea coach Antonio Conte after labelling the Italian a "top" manager and top man.

Hazard has admitted Conte's passion for winning has changed the mentality of the players, who are doing everything they can to win matches.

"He's a top manager, he's a top man," Hazard told Chelsea TV.

"He has the passion to do his job. He gives everything on the bench and we try to give everything on the pitch.

"He's a top guy, he tries to speak a lot with the players, to talk a lot, and we are pleased to work with him.

"During games I try to stay focused, but sometimes when I watch the game the day after [on TV] I see him, he's a little bit crazy sometimes on the bench!"
