Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has said that he would welcome the prospect of working with Real Madrid manager José Mourinho, who has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge in the summer. Mourinho is widely regarded as one of the best managers in the world. He managed at Chelsea for a period of just over two years during which time he led the club to 6 titles. This included two Premier league titles in back-to-back seasons. The succession of managers who have followed the Portuguese have been unable to repeat his feat.

After three years at the Santiago Bernabeu, Mourinho is thought to be contemplating an exit in the summer after growing extremely tired of the Spanish media. Further, there has been a lot of infighting in the dressing room. There are several sections of the Real Madrid players who are against Mourinho. This includes the captain of the team, Iker Casillas, who has recently dropped in favour of the second choice goalkeeper Diego Lopez. Sergio Ramos has also shown public support to Casillas rather than the manager.

This is widely expected to see Mourinho depart Real Madrid and he has hinted that Chelsea may be one of his next destinations. He is thought to have made up his differences with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

“I would like him [Mourinho] to come here. Mourinho is the best coach in the world. Everyone is talking about him here. He is not God, but almost. The fans and the players love him. I wait and see. First I am thinking of finishing the season, then going for a holiday. I will get any news in the press,” said Hazard. The Belgian midfielder for signed for around £ 32 million in the summer and he has proven to be one of the best acquisitions for the club.
