Eden Hazard has admitted that the tactics employed by Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho had left him feeling 'frustrated.
The Belgium wizard had made his return into the first team last night against Atletico Madrid after nearly a month out on the sidelines due to injury and was hoping to drive Chelsea's hopes for silverware this season forward.
The 23-year-old was hoping to cap off a fantastic season, which has seen him included in the PFA Team of the Year on top of being named as the PFA Player's Young Player of the Year.
The Belgian international had expressed his frustrations when he hit back at "The Special One's" tactics by saying: "Often, I'm asked to do it all by myself and it's not easy. It was a complicated game. It will be a lesson for us regarding next year."
The Blues key man went on to state that "Chelsea is not made to play football. We're good on the counter, a little bit like Real against Bayern," expressing how he feels that Chelsea weren't able to take the driving seat as The Pensioners are more of a team that hits you on the counter.
Chelsea had struck first through Fernando Torres in the 36th minute before Adrian Lopez placed "Los Rojiblancos" in the driving seat with a crucial away goal. The Blues were then forced to chase the game with opposition manager Diego Simeone employing tactics that Mourinho would have been proud of.
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher, who expressed his dissatisfaction with Chelsea’s inability to play attacking football, also shared the Belgian international’s sentiments. The former Liverpool vice-captain then went on to say, "Think of the attacking talent at Chelsea. But they've scored two goals in six Champions League semi-finals."
The Englishman went on to say that Chelsea's attack weren't " creative " enough to overcome their Defence's " off night ", something that hopefully Jose Mourinho will address in the coming Summer Transfer Window.
"El Atleti" paved their way towards Lisbon with Chelsea substitute, Samuel Eto'o conceding a Penalty for a foul on Diego Costa, who went on to score from the spot. "Los Indios" cemented their place in Lisbon when Turkish winger Arda Turan scored to give Atletico a sensational three away goals.
Simeone's men will be hoping to complete the double, as Atletico are just two games away from winning the Liga BBVA. Atletico have also made Champions League history with their staunch rivals Real Madrid as being part of the first final in which the two opposing teams are from the same City. Real Madrid are however favourites to get the win over "Los Colchoneros" in Lisbon having a wealth of talent at their disposal, which many believe will be the deciding factor in what should be an exciting occasion.
