Eden Hazard has enthused about his admiration for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane after the Frenchman recently admitted his ‘love’ for the Chelsea star.

The 25-year-old has been plagued by poor form and irregular injury problems this season as the Blues languish in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

But that didn’t’ stop Zidane from claiming Hazard ‘gives him the most’ when he watches Belgium play amid continued rumours the La Liga giants are interested in signing the Chelsea man.

Hazard told Belgian website this week: “It's always nice to hear that a player that I admired during my childhood talks about me.

“I always liked Zidane. Now I know the player by heart but don't know the coach at all, even if he's started very well at the Bernabeu. I'm also still under contract at Chelsea and I feel very good there.

When quizzed if he would like Zidane to coach him one day, Hazard added: “Yes of course. When I was little, I watched him on television and the internet for hours.

“I talked Zidane and I ate Zidane. But, and I repeat it, I feel very good at Chelsea so it's not news.”
