Eden Hazard has revealed that he did not enjoy working under Sarri and Conte as much as he does under Zidane.

Eden Hazard has publicly expressed his admiration for Zinedine Zidane on numerous occasions. The Belgian idolized the Real Madrid manager as a child and longed to play under him. Hazard’s dream was turned into reality earlier this year after the Spanish giants paid £88 million to land him at the Bernabeu.

Recently, as per Goal.com, Eden Hazard revealed that working under Zidane is much more fun than under his previous two managers at Chelsea.

“The training is always with the ball,” Hazard said of training under the Frenchman.

“When you have experimented with Italians, as I have done with Conte or Sarri, you have much less fun. Everything is more framed.”

“It’s hard to compare. I was attracted to Zidane at Madrid and felt very identified. He fascinates me and has even some power over me. 

Hazard went on to talk about his dream of wearing the white jersey.

“It was a dream to get here. 

“When he was very young, in the home garden, he was always the team he supported. Besides, there was Zidane, my idol. 

“The stadium, when I saw it on television, was magical. And the white jersey, impeccable. For me it was exceptional,” Eden Hazard concluded.
