Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho compared Hazard with No 10 Wesley Sneijder from Inter, Mesut Ozil Real Madrid and Deco from Porto, saying that they were complete players, whereas Hazard dropped him during the toughest time he ever faced as manager.
“Wesley Sneijder at Inter and Deco at Porto were the complete No.10s for me. Mesut Ozil was also good for me at Real Madrid.
“Sneijder was special. He was very good. He could defend, get in the box and score goals.
“Can Eden become that man? I don’t think so.
“Eden and I have different concepts of the No.10 position,” the manager said.
