Eden Hazard Says Chelsea “Aren’t Set Up to Play Football”

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has had a range of critics for the way he has set his side out to play in recent weeks, but the latest criticism has come from his own camp in the shape of star player Eden Hazard.

The Mail report that Hazard moved to criticise Chelsea’s tactics after the match with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night, after the Blues crashed out of Europe with a 3-1 defeat in the semi-final stage of the Champions League.

Chelsea attained results against Atletico in the first leg last week and then at Liverpool last Sunday, but failed to perform to the necessary level last time out as they were beaten at home by the Spanish league leaders.

This prompted a response from Hazard, as he told beIN SPORTS’ French station; “Chelsea aren’t set up to play football. Chelsea are set up to counter-attack.”

His comments could reflect an unhappiness at the Bridge, and will only add to speculation that he wants to leave the club in the summer, with the likes of Paris Saint Germain very strongly linked with the Belgian international.

Hazard and Chelsea face ending the season without a trophy after their European exit, barring a miraculous turn of events in the Premier League that will see both Liverpool and Manchester City capitulate
