Chelsea star Eden Hazard is keen to reunite with former boss Jose Mourinho at some point of his career.

Hazard was a key asset of Jose’s side on his return to Chelsea, as the forward played a huge role in guiding the Blues to the Premier League and the League Cup titles back in the 2014-15 campaign.

The Belgian has been a mainstay of this Chelsea side post Mourinho’s exit as well, and he featured heavily under former manager Antonio Conte, and now Maurizio Sarri.

On the other hand, Mourinho, who now manages Manchester United, has been at Old Trafford since 2016. The Portuguese will see his side face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their next Premier League match on October 20.

Speaking about the manager of his upcoming opponents, Hazard had the following to say about the Portuguese tactician (via HLN): “If I’m now asked one coach with whom I want to work again, then I say: ‘Mourinho’.

He further added: “Mourinho’s image of an extremely defensive coach isn’t completely right. The season in which we became champions, we made many goals and played good games.”

Hazard will now hope to show his goal-scoring form against the underperforming Red Devils at the Bridge, with Mourinho on the sidelines.
