How I restored Hazard’s confidence after Mourinho left – Conte

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has revealed how he helped Eden Hazard back to his best, by telling the player to act and play like a superstar.

The Belgium midfielder scored again last weekend, as the Blues defeated Bournemouth 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium. This time last year, Hazard only broke a 355-day Premier League goal drought, as they struggled under Jose Mourinho.

Hazard already has 14 league goals to his name this season and Conte believes that it is down to his confidence.

“I am happy for Eden and he scored a good goal; he is doing a good job, good work during the game,” Conte said.

“He is a great player, a great talent and he must understand that he is a great player and never forget this.

“I think that every coach’s real function is not only to win but a good coach tries to improve the players and also tries to find the right way to work with them — tactical aspects and physical aspects — to show them the situation that they can improve.

“I think a good coach, a good manager must do this, not only to win or to buy the best players in the world.”
