Chelsea star Eden Hazard has opened up on Jose Mourinho’s exit from the club in 2015 and said he would like to play under him again.
Mourinho was sacked months after winning the Premier League title at Stamford Bridge, and Hazard said he felt partially responsible.

Hazard racked up 14 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League as Chelsea won the title in 2014-15, but the following season, he produced just four of each, with all of his goals coming in the final five matches of the campaign.
He told Stephan Keygnaert of Belgian outlet Het Laatste Nieuws (h/t MailOnline’s James Dutton):
“I don’t regret many things in my career, but that I have not been able to work with Mourinho at Chelsea anymore is one of them.
“We had a team that could win more trophies. We just ended up in a negative cycle.
“I sent him a message to say I was sorry he had gone and that I was sorry. We’d enjoyed all that success together, but this time we hadn’t.
“I felt a little bit guilty because I’d been Player of the Year. I’d been one of the most decisive players, and then I performed less.”
