Chelsea boss José Mourinho says that the English culture of football will probably prevent the world from seeing the best of Eden Hazard.
The Chelsea winger managed to win the PFA and the football writers Player of the Year award. He has had a sensational campaign in which he has contributed almost 30 goals from 44 appearances in all competitions. Mourinho reckons thatHazard is only behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi when it comes to the best player in the world. Messi and Ronaldo have both been scoring lots of goals in the last five years, but Mourinho reckons that this largely because of playing in Spain.
The Spanish league is largely dominated by Real Madrid and Barcelona, who managed to win most matches during a season. It has not been so surprising to see these two teams achieve 100 points over the course of a campaign. Along the way, this domination has also helped Messi and Ronaldo achieve improbable figures when it comes to scoring. Mourinho reckons that it is almost impossible for Hazard reach the same levels when he is playing his football in the English league, which is far more tougher. The Belgian wizard has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and Madrid in the last few weeks.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has admitted for the first time that he may be a bit tired after having played almost 50 games for club and country this season.
The wizard was substituted after just 60 minutes in Belgium’s Euro 2016 qualifying match against Israel. A 1-0 win for Belgium continued their impressive form in the qualification campaign, but Hazard did not played the full 90 minutes. The 24-year-old was visibly displeased with his manager, but he later admitted that Marc Wilmots may have correctly found out that he is no longer fresh.
Jose Mourinho and Hazard share a great relationship and the 24-year-old has been a virtual untouchable in the Chelsea starting line-up. He has played in every match of the Premier League this season. Even though he has been playing a lot of games, his figures have improved year-on-year. This season, he has scored 16 goals and contributed eight assists in 36 matches. He is on course to bettering his goal tally from last season after he has managed three goals in his last four appearances.Hazard is not expected to be rested by Mourinho for the weekend’s match against Stoke City at Stamford Bridge. The Belgian winger is an extremely important player for Chelsea in the title race.
