Considering Eden Hazard managed to pick up the PFA Player of the Year award last season with just 14 goals ands nine assists, you’d think that they were performing some kind of magic behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge.
However, as The Blues gear up for another potentially successful season, the 24-year-old Belgian ace has admitted that he cannot stand pre-season training, though he concedes that he is aware of the benefits of a good work out before the action kicks off.
“I can’t say I really enjoy training right now,” he said.
“Because we do a lot of running and work hard, but it’s good to be there and work on your fitness a little bit more than during the season when you do a lot of recovery and technical work.”
Though after a break, he followed up by admitted that he can’t wait for the new season to kick off once again.
“It’s good to be back. I had a great holiday. I went away with my family, and now I’m ready to be on the pitch again and get back to work.”
Since joining the club from French side Lille back in 2012, he says he is more than settled with life in West London as he looks to add another Premier League title to his already considerable trophy cabinet.
“Now I am starting my fourth season here and I am an old man at Chelsea! I know all the guys and the staff well.
“I feel settled and comfortable with everybody and I think it’s very good to stay at one club for a long time.”
