Eden Hazard sparked fury in manager Jose Mourinho this week when he criticised tactics used in the Champions League showdown between the Blues and Atletico Madrid - Mourinho has hit back.
Although the Blue's boss had originally played down the comments made by his star player, Mourinho went on to admit that the views of Hazard were not a surprise.
In an interview Mourinho stated that, "Normally you get this kind of comment from players like him, from players who can’t resolve a problem like we had with the first goal.
"He’s not the kind of player ready to sacrifice himself 100 per cent for the team and his mates."
This comes after the Belgium scooped the PFA Young Player of the Year award on Sunday night. With Mourinho utilising Hazard on the wing, his star performances haven't gone unnoticed - he has, this season, set the Premier League alight.
The starlet has scored 17 goals in 48 appearances for Chelsea this term including a hat-rick against Newcastle back in February. But, that does not have appeared to prevent a rift forming between the Chelsea boss and the 23-year-old.
Questions are already being asked about the future of the former Lille man, with PSG looking interested in the forward for a sum around £40million. This leaves the future of Hazard's career still very much a talking point this summer.
