Jose Mourinho intimidates Chelsea star

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard admits he may feel intimidated by Jose Mourinho when the new Blues boss takes his first training session with the club, although the Belgian says he is excited to work with the Portuguese.

Mourinho completed his protracted return to Chelsea on Monday having presided over his final game with Real Madrid only two days before, and inherits a squad with a number of players ready to reach the next level.

Hazard is one of those having enjoyed a decent first season as a Chelsea player following his £32 million transfer to Stamford Bridge from Lille, and feels Mourinho has the ability to extract the best from him.

The 22-year-old, however, claims he is a little nervous at the prospect of working with Mourinho when they players report for pre-season training next month, although admits he feels lucky to have the chance to be coached by the ex-Porto and Inter chief.

"They already knew for a long time at Chelsea that he was going to sign and they all told me that it would be a good thing for me," Hazard said, as reported by The Guardian.

"José Mourinho is someone special and it's a pleasure to have him as a coach.

"Maybe in the first training session I will be a bit intimidated – after all, it's José Mourinho. But he is also a man, with two arms and two legs and so, in the end, I will have a normal relationship with him, just as I have with my previous coaches."
