Eden Hazard has been struggling to repeat the form he showed last season when winning the PFA player of the year award, with Chelsea winning just three of their 12 matches so far this season.
Hazard’s father Thierry says that he is not worried about his son’s form, as he knows it will not be long before he is back to his best
Speaking to the Daily Mirror he said: “Eden has played first-team football since the age of 16.
“In almost six years, he has never been suspended or suffered a big injury. You have to put things in perspective. Each year it sets new goals that he makes a really point in achieving.
“Personally, he is conscious of having to improve his stats. His strength lies in knowing exactly where he is at, but never gets overwhelmed: he does not purposely miss a penalty … but any cloud has a silver lining.
“If he plays less, he would arrive less tired at the Euros which he is so keen on playing because it takes place in his back garden, with his own watching.”
Eden’s dad also praised Chelsea manager Mourinho and the way he handles both of his sons.
“I’ve dealt with him on two occasions to discuss the loan Thorgan and Eden’s contract extension,” he said.
“I like what he has to say. I continue to support his choices. Eden as well who understands and accepts them.
“Moreover, I think he handles him well. When he drops him, he is not punishing him, I am sure, but it is by tactical choice.”
