He said he felt "a little bit guilty" about his part in Mourinho's Stamford Bridge downfall and defended the manager's approach.

He says he sent a text to Mourinho shortly after the dismissal, apologising for his performances. "We had a team to get a lot of prizes".

I don't have time but we will talk about my future soon.

Jose Mourinho has found an unlikely backer with Chelsea star Eden Hazard saying he'd play for the manager again.

Although Hazard acknowledged that Mourinho's playing style was not as adventurous as that of Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, he added that the perception he is overly defensive is unfair.

Hazard has been in scintillating form for Chelsea this season and is the Premier League's top scorer with seven goals.

"Mourinho's image of an extremely defensive coach isn't completely right", the Belgium global said. "I'd been one of the most decisive players, and then I performed less". "We did not win, we got into a sort of routine-training-training without having fun". I said he could end up in the tight circle of the best three or four players in the world. "We just ended up in a negative cycle".

Modric won the Player of the Tournament award at the World Cup, whilst also winning the Best Men's Player at the Best FIFA Football Awards in London earlier this year.

Pogba had urged Mourinho to adopt a more attacking approach at Old Trafford.

Hazard has said time and time again he is happy to remain at Chelsea but with just over two years left on his current deal with the Blues, the winger who is now in the form of his life knows that any kind of statement he makes about a potential transfer will be amplified in the coming months.

Real Madrid is looking for the right player to fill the void left behind by the 5 times Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo after his shock transfer to Juventus this summer but they might not find the answer to their dilemma with Eden Hazard after all.
